Happy Holidays

This time of year we hunker down with family to celebrate life. Whether that celebration is called Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or Festivus, the winter holidays celebrate passing the darkest day of the year, passing through death, and moving toward the spring and rebirth (well, okay, maybe not Festivus).

To quote Frank Cross (Bill Murray) from Scrooged (1988) with a little editing since I'm a bit late on this post:

 It's Christmas . . .! It's... it's the one [day] of the year when we all act a little nicer, we... we... we smile a little easier, we... w-w-we... we... we cheer a little more. For a couple of hours out of the whole year, we are the people that we always hoped we would be!

Anyway, whether you celebrate around a decorated tree, group of candles or a stack of 23 Bud Lite cans, happy holidays to you and yours from me and mine. Let us all strive to be the people we always hoped we would be.
