This time of year is marked with more holidays than any other time of the year.  It’s why we say “happy holidays” to others….there are scores of these holidays that happen around this time of the year, all of which are opportunities to settle into the warm nest of home and try to shake off the dark days of winter and make some warmth and mirth in our lives.

So I hope the best of holidays to you, whatever your faith or way of life.  Christmas is soon, but so is Kwanza, Hanukkah, and the solstice! Happy New Year!  Here is a list of just a few of the events that take place around the world during December….

I will be traveling for part of my holiday, so I may not be blogging as much, or I might manage to put something down between airports and trains and cars and horse-caravans…so if I don’t get back soon enough, know I wish you the very best!
