Were you raised, as I was, on beautiful Christmas traditions, on magical holiday movies, and on Christmas carols that stir the heart and invoke memories of love, laughter, giving and feasting… ?

Have you ever noticed how many of our celebrations involve light? On New Year’s Eve we have fireworks; on Valentine’s Day, romantic candles. On Halloween we set tea lights in Jack-o-lanterns and at Christmas we deck miniature lights ‘round our Christmas trees. Even our birthdays don’t get away without a little trick of a candle […]

For as long as I can remember, as the end of each year approaches, I find myself reflecting on the year that is almost over. How did I spend the year? What were the high points throughout the past months? Were the low point’s events which could have been played down, had I reacted differently […]
