Happy Holidays…

It’s hard to believe it’s that time of year again!  Whichever holiday you celebrate: Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, Winter Solstice, you have to agree that they’re all about mostly the same thing . . .  togetherness.  Family, cookies, friends, parties . . . together!

“‘Twas a long time ago, longer now than it seems in a place perhaps you’ve seen in your dreams. For the story you’re about to be told began with the holiday worlds of auld. Now you’ve probably wondered where holidays come from. If you haven’t I’d say it’s time you begun.”
