  1. My perfectly Happy Holidays is one where money is no concern. Everyone in the family receives whatever present they truly want. We work alongside, affectionately, with jokes and laughter, to prepare meals and spend time together, chatting, puzzling and lazily competing at boxed games. We even take blustery walks together!

  2. Recently, Ethan and Megan attended the local children’s choir’s winter show. The choir sang songs of snow and winter, but nothing of the holidays that make the season special. There was no mention of Christmas, or Santa, or Hanukkah, or even a passing nod to Kwanzaa. Fearful of offending audience members, the choir directors opted for a completely generic show which was concluded by a rousing “Happy Holidays”.

  3. Dense fog blankets the ground. Visibility very limited. Few metres at the most. A scattering of pedestrians, muffled and woollen-armored,even on the busiest junctions. Cars fogging inside out, honking in blind exasperation.Wind cuts through the pretense of clothes, numbing to the bone. Happy holidays should mean only one thing. Warm quilts, hot soups and lots of board games ( “bored games”) inside heater warmed rooms.May the Lord shine his benevolence, in the form of sunshine, on you.

  4. “She may have had a stroke,” my sister said, 800 miles away in San Diego. “They don’t know?” I asked, “What are they doing?” She said they’d taken my 82-year-old grandma in for a series of tests, including an MRI, EKG, ultrasound, and CT scan. She had started having leg pain two days earlier, but hid it until my sister wondered why she was taking so much aspirin.

  5. I’m sitting here looking at my Christmas tree as I write thinking that its reign will soon come to an end. Its happy holidays are almost over since Santa came and went and now it awaits the arrival of The Three Kings, which will be on January 6 of the upcoming year. I don’t know about the rest of you, but 2014 whizzed by for me. The best to all in 2015!
