Is it my imagination, or is everyone primed to celebrate the holidays early? Neighbors already put their Christmas lights up before we ever got to Thanksgiving. Perhaps after a long, hard pandemic season of retreat and seclusion, people are aching to come together again. And celebrate.
Whether this will be your day to gather with extended family around the table at home, or to escape the day's kitchen toil to focus on the social side of the celebration, I wish you a day of peace and reflection on whatever makes you most thankful.
