Happy birthday to the Man in Black, born in 1932, in Kingsland, Arkansas.
Many happy returns of the day to Sheryl Crow, born on this day in Kennett, Missouri.
Happy Birthday and many returns of the day to Lucinda Williams.
I am thinking of you today because it is Christmas, and I wish you happiness.
And tomorrow, because it will be the day after Christmas, I shall still wish you happiness; and so on throughout the year.
I may not be able to tell you about it every day because I may be far away, or because both of us may be very busy, or perhaps I cannot even afford to pay the postage on so many letters; or find the time to write them.
But that makes no difference. The thought and the wish will be here just the same: In my work and in the business of life I mean to try not to be unfair to you in any way. In my pleasure if we can be together, I would like to share the fun with you. Whatever joy or success that comes to you will make me glad.
Without pretense, and in plain words — Good Will is what I mean. May the spirit of Christmas be yours throughout the year.
— Henry Van Dyke
