Merry Christmas to all!

I always look forward to the Christmas Eve drive from my home in Belleville, Ill., to my mom's farm near Brighton.

Of course, there's the anticipation of celebrating Christmas with my family. Tomorrow morning, I will go to Christmas Mass with my mom at St. Alphonsus Catholic Church in Brighton. After that, we'll make a brief visit to the gravesites of my dad, Henry "Gene" Kramer, and my brother, Wes Kramer. The family gathers at my mom's house to open presents, then we move on to the home of my younger sister, Karen, down in Godfrey for Christmas dinner.

But there is something special about that drive. Christmas Eve is a silent night, a holy night. The drive up Interstate 255 is much more peaceful than it is every other day of the year. It's a reminder that Christ Child continues to change people's lives.

So this Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, I hope you, too, will be able to take some moments for silence and peace to reflect upon what you can do to make the world a better place.

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
