More we than me

What does Christmas mean to you? A holiday greeting from the staff at Santa Clara Magazine.

What does Christmas mean to you? In this year’s Santa Clara University holiday greeting (which you can watch below), professor Aldo Billingslea says that Christmas and the holiday season is a time to think about making the world “more about we than me.” Santa Clara Magazine extends warm holiday wishes to our readers wherever they may be—it is you who makes us we.

As the New Year approaches, we look forward to bringing you more stories about the transformative ways Santa Clarans are making a difference, whether through good works in the global community, innovative approaches backed by an entrepreneurial spirit, contributions to the life of the mind, or by simple kindnesses extended each day. It is through these stories that we learn how we’re all connected, how we’re family.

MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HOLIDAYS, AND HAPPY NEW YEAR.
