As for the Holidays …



For the next four weeks we all (well mostly all because there will always be the ones that don’t 😉) will be quite busy preparing for the annual celebration of the Holidays (Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa) and later to ring in the new year. How time has flown. It seems like yesterday we were getting ready to get together for the same. Time, aside from being the measurement we use to determine a point of time as measured in hours and minutes past midnight or noon and the indefinite continued progress of existence and events in the past, present, and future regarded as a whole* and very well defined in the Oxford Dictionary, remains elusive like a smooth flowing continuum. (And if you are lost there ... don;t worry it will only get better) Dimensional and illusory, time is an observed phenomenon perceived as senses and changes in the environment and the universe. Quite a mouthful, I agree, but with a certain poetic undertone to it nevertheless.

Anyway, I am diverging. This is about the holidays and not really about time. Or is it? I’d like to start with Christmas, the holiday that celebrates the birth of Jesus, a time where people come together and on Christmas morning open the presents Santa Claus thought they deserved. My daughter V, like her dad, loves Christmas. It’s her favorite holiday, and she really starts getting into the spirit right after Thanksgiving. No, before Thanksgiving. Just as soon as the Hallmark Christmas movies are being released on tv. Real Christmas nerds they are, those two.
