Merry is a very important middah to incorporate into ones personality, both on the spiritual hemisphere and the corporate perspectives on life.
It may be just as important as inner happiness and qualitative equilibrium.
And of course humility and world peace. yup its all about world peace.
I guess merriment, happiness, love and humility will bring about world peace.
At the end of the day what matters most is the traditional Christmas Tree, its the perfect tradition on so many different levels.
I purchased a crystal I heart NY ornament at Santa NY in Bryant Park.
I'm building my Christmas tree one sentimental ornament at a time.
