There is so much to love about this time of year. Here are a few of my favorites.
Hot chocolate. Even better with marshmallows floating on top. Older brothers and sisters coming home for the holidays. My kids coming home for the holidays. Twinkly lights. A radio station that only plays Christmas songs. Ok, I listen to NPR but it’s still nice to know.
I also love that going to a Chinese Restaurant on Christmas can be a family tradition. And if we go someplace new during the Winter break, we use our Qibla compass to find the proper direction to pray. And at work we have secret Santa games. And at home we have dreidels. And we bundle up to go outside even when it is freezing to sing Christmas carols or to go to Midnight Mass.
