The bad news -
It is Winter.
Winter is cold and windy and this Winter is setting up to be a particularly cold one.
There is lots of good news.
First, a savior was born, to save his people from their sins, and to take away the sin of the world.
We are celebrating that event (even if it does not coincide with the date of the actual event).
While it IS Winter, the days are getting longer.
This is a good thing.
In God we trust.
