Enjoying Late Autumn and Happy Holidays!
November and December are packed with holidays and we share the traditional ways some families celebrate. Gathering family stories for this article was informative and fun as many were happy to share traditions, memories and photographs. While listening to details about the various traditions, I was struck by the similarities. Lighting candles, the number “seven” and partaking in special foods is repeated across many celebrations.
We have so much to learn from each other. And, the more we learn about other religions and cultures, the more we respect, honor and appreciate our neighbors, which is a very good thing.
So, I wish you readers Happy Holidays. No matter what you celebrate, nor how, I hope you join with family and friends for your holiday and consider inviting someone that does not share your faith or culture and allow them to experience your celebration. There could be no better gift.
Be well, be kind and practice being your best you.
