Wishing You a Merry Christmas

The weeks leading up to, and including Christmas, are approaching us ever-so-fast, and fearing I may forget, I take this opportunity to extend to Melih (CEO), and the Staff at Comodo, all the best for a Blessed and Joyous Christmas Season. Thank you for all the hard work Comodo has put forth in the past year. I look forward to the promises of new things to come in the New Year 2007, as Comodo presses towards the mark of "Creating Trust Online."

Several years ago, I came across a Christmas Message written by the renowed Author Henry Van Dyke. It’s message is thought-provoking, profound, and one that puts life into perspective; a message worth sharing with you all. Over the next few weeks, I may not be regularly logged into Comodo Forum, as I will be busy in preparedness for the Yuletide Season. I extend to each and every member of Comodo Forum my sincere and best wishes for a Merry Christmas!

KEEPING CHRISTMAS Author: Henry Van Dyke

It is a good thing to observe Christmas day. The mere marking of times and seasons, when men agree to stop work and make merry together, is a wise and wholesome custom. It helps one to feel the supremacy of the common life over the individual life. It reminds a man to set his own little watch, now and then, by the great clock of humanity which runs on sun time.

But there is a better thing than the observance of Christmas day, and that is keeping Christmas.

Are you willing to forget what you have done for other people, and to remember what other people have done for you; to ignore what the world owes you, and to think what you owe the world; to put your rights in the background, and your duties in the middle distance, and your chances to do a little more than your duty in the foreground; to see that your fellow men are just as real as you are, and try to look behind their faces to their hearts, hungry for joy; to own that probably the only good reason for your existence is not what you are going to get out of life, but what you are going to give to life; to close your book of complaints against the management of the universe, and look around you for a place where you can sow a few seeds of happiness - are you willing to do these things for a day? Then you can keep Christmas.

Are you willing to stoop down and consider the needs and desires of little children; to remember the weakness and loneliness of people who are growing old; to stop asking how much your friends love you, and ask yourself whether you love them enough; to bear in mind the things that other people have to bear in their hearts; to try to understand what those who live in the same house with you really want, without waiting for them to tell you; to trim your lamp so that it will give more light and less smoke, and to carry it in front so that your shadow will fall behind you; to make a grave for your ugly thoughts and a garden for your kindly feelings, with the gate open - are you willing to do these things even for a day? Then you can keep Christmas.

Are you willing to believe that love is the strongest thing in the world - stronger than hate, stronger than evil, stronger than death - and that the blessed life which began in Bethlehem two thousand years ago is the image and brightness of Eternal Love? Then you can keep Christmas.

And if you can keep it for a day, why not always?

But you can never keep it alone.

Merry Xmas to you too Kevin and all our user who make up our Comodo Community.

From all of us at Comodo.

Melih

Thank you Kevin. I personally don’t know of any people who do not require reminders (at least once in a while). And without a doubt, some things are more important to remember than others.

Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Laurence

Thx a lot Kevin! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and yours!
