Merry, Merry

“Christmas is, in fact, an assault on bleakness – spiritual, emotional, and seasonal.  Whether your approach to it is lavish or simple, the ingredients that make the holiday atmosphere so compelling – generosity and attention to the wants of others – make it an irresistible and in fact indispensable way to end one year and begin another.”

Whether you celebrate Christmas as a religious holiday or not I hope you can put stock in Mark Hampton’s sentiment from a House & Garden past.  Wishing you a happy and healthy new year.
