On this unseasonably warm Christmas Eve, let us all keep in mind that it is not now much money you spend or how many presents you receive. The true spirit of the season is found among our family, friends and neighbors.
Over the last twelve months, I have seen this spirit permeate throughout our community at each and every event I have had the pleasure and honor of attending. Our community has come together in both good times and bad. Thankfully, 2015 had more good than bad. However, no matter the circumstances Binghamtonians have proudly stood by and with each other.
I wish each and everyone of you a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Festivus and a Very Happy New Year.
