This year circumstances are going to make it possible to have New Year's Eve with my family. That hasn't happened since we were kids. So we're going to have champagne and snacks while we greet the New Year in.
I hope yours is going to be the best ever.

Wherever you are, whatever holiday you practice, I hope you keep safe and well. For me, it's the big family Christmas Brunch. I've been cooking since yesterday and look forward to having the time with family to share our time together exchanging stories of past Christmases before we lost anyone from our midst, before Christmas brought with it feelings of loss. We'll evoke memories that make us laugh or give us pause and eat until we burst.
When everyone has gone their separate way, and the house grows silent once again, I'll think about the New Year and make a wish that it will be a very good year.
In the meantime, I'll turn on the Christmas lights, nibble on the confections freshly baked and and anticipate with joy and hope for a very merry Christmas. I wish you all a Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, and Joyful Kwanzaa! Be safe. Be happy!
