Thank You San Mateo County Jail

On our way walking to hometown holidays our first hint that we were almost there came as we began down Marshall Street.  We could definitely hear singing.  Men's voices.  We eventually heard enough to know that it was Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, and the kids got very excited.  Then we went to see where the music was coming from, expecting a rehearsing choir just around the corner.  But no, we eventually decided it was coming from the San Mateo County Jail.  
I could see the shock and contemplation in my nine year old's face as he processed for the first time that the men in jail were real people with real families who celebrate Christmas and have families they love.  And that's where the Christmas spirit is, helping us see the goodness in one another.  Thank you San Mateo County Jail for this wonderful Christmas moment.
