How Does Ventura Spell Merry Christmas?


In this time like no other, some things remain timeless and unchanged.
How does Ventura spell Merry Christmas?
In a way that defines this season — and every other.
In a way that sees to the inevitable.
Light defeating dark.
How Does Ventura Spell Merry Christmas?
M is for Magic. The magic of this, and every, season. Here in Ventura, and wherever you find yourself.
E is for everybody. Our Ventura family. Our global family.
R is for Resilience. Ventura has it. Humankind has it.
R is for Radiant. Ventura sunrises and sunsets. And everything between.
Y is for Yes. Yes, we can.
C is for Caring. It’s what Ventura has always done. It’s what so many are doing as you read this.
H is for Hope. Yes, these are the toughest of times. But the smallest dose of H is powerful medicine.
R is for Romance. Never lose sight of the romance of it all.
I is for Impact. You can make one.
S is for Selflessness. It elevates us. It surrounds us. Thank you, quiet heroes.
T is for Together. This time not literally, but very much figuratively.
M is for Magnificent. It’s what humanity can be.
A is for Attitude. It’s often the pendulum on which everything swings
S is for Smile. Share one with someone you know. Or, better yet, someone you don’t. A priceless, affordable gift.
The two last letters, they bear repeating. Sound them out.
Love and family and religion and … well, you can keep it going.
All fall under the umbrella of this most beautiful word.
Merry Christmas from all of us at Visit Ventura.
