Always a race to the finish for some shoppers, the Christmas season also has been a roller coaster this year. For the country, violence tempered joy over the end of the Iraq War as partisanship brought the federal government to the brink. The community has fretted about whether Boeing will leave town, as the Salvation Army and other charities have struggled to make their seasonal goals. Yet the spirit of this holy Christian day prevails, as families and friends come together to exchange gifts, share food, renew their hopes for the future and, most important, celebrate Jesus’ birth. Joy to the world, and to Wichita.
