And plenty of good reading now and in the new year
Isn’t this a complex time of year?
On the one hand, we’re rushing about to create perfect Martha Stewart holidays. Deck the halls, trim the tree, bake the cookies, plan the parties, shop and spend, choose the presents and wrap them. Ah to be Jewish, with Chanukah already celebrated and put to rest.
On the other, we’re harkening back to a perfect time of peace, comfort and joy, whether our ideal is a Silent Night, White Christmas or some other Good Olde Day.
