PIPA wishes you a Merry Christmas!

Christmas is the beginning of new life with the birth of Jesus, the messiah. Today people are less and less interested in this story, if at all. Church and religion have lost their appeal and yet we all believe in something, for instance in a better future or in a dream coming true. We all believe in our own way.

Most fanciers see their first eggs hatch around Christmas and this new life brings new hope. They start to hope that they will discover a better pigeon or a champion among these young birds. One pigeon could make the dream of winning a national first title or a national ace pigeon title come true. 

Christmas is also a time to reflect and to take a look back at all the memorable moments as well as the unpleasant events. You think about the goals that have been achieved and the expectations that have been met but you also think about the things that went wrong and the goals that have not been achieved. You cannot turn back the time but you can look into the future. The idea is to maintain and improve your strong points while trying to learn from your mistakes. 

At this time of the year we have shorter days, dark evenings and long nights but this has its own beauty as well: the stars are shining from the early evening until the late morning. They look best in this season and you have plenty of time to enjoy them. They reflect in a way our inner self, our soul. Every individual is a star on his own for what he does. Every invidual has his own limits and the brightest stars are those that can really achieve something despite these limits, that can stand out in an honest way. They stand out from falling stars, who fade out very quickly.

During Christmas we spend a lot of time with the people we love. We enjoy the warmth of the open fire with our family, friends or acquaintances. We enjoy the christmas presents, a delicious meal, a glass of wine and a warm atmosphere. Share your happiness with others and discover how wonderful life can be.

We wish you a merry christmas!
