I want to wish all the people in Tucson, Merry Christmas! December is my favorite month, not just because I get school off. I love seeing the lights, festivities, 94.9 FM playing Christmas music all day, and riding through Winterhaven. I still love Frosty the Snowman, Rudolph the Red-nosed reindeer, and all the TV specials aired during this time. This is always a blessed and fun time of year.
I am blessed to be a Muslim American in this country, which allows me to practice my faith freely and openly. I am truly blessed to be a Tucsonan.
I am honored to have friends whom I have enjoyed Christmas with, and who have enjoyed Christmas with me. I pray to Allah this upcoming year brings blessings, joy, happiness and peace to all.
