The end-of-year holidays are upon us: Christmas, Chanukah, Kwanzaa, and a host of other celebrations. It’s been a rough year. I think we all deserve to unplug and take a break.
This week I’m shifting from “blogging all the way” to “celebrating all the way.” Whatever I do, I do one hundred percent!
As many of you know, I’m Jewish all the way… And while I honor the holiday—Chanukah—that celebrates my roots, I also partake in Christmas. When it comes to celebrating holidays, my philosophy is the more, the merrier. Happiness seems to be in short supply this year, so I’m borrowing some joy from the end-of-year festivities.
This year, Chanukah took place December 10 through 18, which left a weeklong gap before Christmas. The eight days of Chanukah are now over, and I already cleaned and stored the menorah. Now, it’s time to bring in the Christmas spirit into the house—no questions asked—and it’s already checked off my list. All that’s left for me to do is stuff the stockings for the family. Then, I plan to spend these next few days relaxing, baking, and enjoying the winter weather—from inside my home next to the fireplace while watching some Hallmark movies, of course! Listening to some Christmas music might also be in store for me.
I’m looking forward to seeing 2020 come to a close—just like my Santa is doing here. I envision him saying, “Let’s pedal all the way into 2021!”
The New Year is just around the corner—I’m staying positive.
No matter what you celebrate this time of year, I wish you and your family the most heartfelt Happy Holidays.
Much love all the way,
