It’s the most wonderful time of the year. If that short sentiment has you cringing at the mere reference to another holiday song, this time of year is your own personal hell. If you’re looking for sympathy, you’ve come to the wrong blog.
Say what you will about winter, it has its bright spots. Yes, it’s cold. Yes, it’s grey. But if you keep an open mind, there’s magic to be found. For one, as the days grow shorter the nights grow brighter. That’s especially true this evening as it’s the first night of Hanukkah.
Thanksgiving is upon us and whether you realize it or not, there’s something extra special about this year’s Thanksgiving. For the first and only time in our lifetimes (assuming that no one discovers a cure for death…Google…) the first night of Hanukkah will fall on the same day as Thanksgiving.
