This Is Christmas!
This special day has both a strong religious and traditional meaning. It has a certain feel, all to itself, that you usually do not feel at any other time of the year. It creates within us, a sense of kindness and concern for our fellow man. At no other time are we more generous and giving. It creates a sense of family and belonging.
Everyone comes home, or at least, wants to for the Christmas holiday. It is a time of family and giving. It is truly a time that comes but once a year. Feel free to join in celebration of the magic, the wonder and the spirit of this holiday season.
Concho Valley birthdays include:

We wish you a very Merry Christmas!
