Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of the year. It’s just easier. There’s lots of cooking and baking to be done, but I am lucky to have 3 sisters. So … divide everything by four! Two days of prep, and the rest is all about spending time with family and feasting on the best meal of the year.
Christmas is another story. Advertising starts earlier every year, but who shops in September? I remember getting a lot less gifts when I was younger, but my memories of Christmas then were so very special. I wish we could reign everything in so we can really enjoy the holiday and giving some but not everything. I think the gifts would be more special then.
Christmas is a religious holiday for many of us, and Hanukkah coincides with Christmas Eve this year. My gift to you is my wish for a very happy and blessed holiday. And may 2017 bring you good health & joy.
