Whether you celebrate the holiday or not, this Christmas weekend, every weekend, and every day, you can be merry and bright. Be happy, and spread kindness, hope, cheer, and love. It doesn't have to be the holiday season to do these things because we all could use this every single day.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, Quad Cities!
