I realize that the holidays mean different things to different people. To some the end of December is the end of just another month. For the ones of us that get giddy around the festivals and traditions, let me say just one it to the fullest. Capture every moment of joy watching a child’s eyes light up opening a gift. Breath in the fresh smell of holly and cinnamon. Delight in the meal lovingly prepared by your family, and feel the warmth from the fireplace or the hot coco. Let the season engulf you and lift your spirits. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone.
