A college friend of Momma's just wrote on Facebook,
It was suggested to me earlier that we should all take down our Christmas lights in honor of the memory of the children of Newtown... for how can we, in all conscience, be happy in the face of such horrific tragedy?
And I said- DO NOT take your Christmas lights down!
Instead: Light every Goddamn light you have! Light up your tree, your house and your yard with the brightest, the merriest and most colorful lights you can find! Fill your speakers with the the happiest, funniest, most wonderful music you own! Dance, Sing, Hug, laugh, smile....giggle, be silly... make cookies, wait up for Santa...
If you want to honor children... be one of them!
So we spreading Lights Across the World on Friday, Dec. 21, 2012 - the Winter Solstice, the darkest day of the year.
Spread the word and honor the children!
