Although we are not religious, we celebrate Christmas.
And I still cannot think of a better way to celebrate Christmas than with the words of the astronauts of Apollo 8, and the sense of awe they felt when they became the first human beings ever in the history of our species to be completely cut off from Mother Earth, when their spaceship disappeared behind the Moon.
Re-emerging, they read passages from the Book of Genesis to their audience, with Frank Borman concluding with the words:
[G]ood night, good luck, a Merry Christmas – and God bless all of you, all of you on the good Earth.
To me, this is the most beautiful Christmas message ever.
