“Aren’t you going to wish us a Merry Christmas?”

     The Master glanced at the calendar, saw it was a Thursday, and said, “I’d much rather wish you a happy Thursday.”

     This offended the Christians in the monastery till the Master explained, “Millions will enjoy, not today, but Christmas–so their joy is short-lived.  But for those who have learned to enjoy Today, every day is Christmas.”
