Happy Holidays From Pinnacle

Merry ChristmasAll of us at Pinnacle Entertainment wish all of you the very happiest of holiday seasons. Enjoy your traditions, family, and friends. Embrace the familiar even as you look forward to the fresh excitement of a new year.

Whether it’s the solstice’s literal increase in light, Christmas’ metaphorical light of the birth of Jesus, or Hanukkah’s blend with the miracle of the oil,* most of the season’s holidays are about bringing light into the darkness. While you’re celebrating the lengthening of the day, be a point of light in the darkness yourself.

There is no kindness we can do for one another that’s too small, and you may be the only glimmer someone else sees. Heck, you’ve done it for us all year long with your smiles at conventions, interest on-line, and encouragement when we find ourselves at the bottom of a pile of edit and layout work. Share that part of yourself that we’re always so happy to see, and make the world a better place for us all!

* You’d be right to guess I am not a rabbinical scholar, but I believe I have the gist of it correct. Please be kind if you’re going to let me know I’m wrong.
