I must be honest. Each year when asked to write something about Christmas and celebrating, I find it very difficult to do so. I balk at the task. And the reason for this is my knowledge that Christmas is not a happy time for everybody. There are a lot of people for whom Christmas is […]

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 […]

Your Breathing Space for December

I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them […]
