A card is the four letter word for the season.
The cards have been coming in the mail this week, wishing me a happy holiday and catching me up with the latest antics of family and friends. Which seems a little strange in the age of social networking, but it is surprising how little news I actually pick up. And the wishes are certainly welcome.
It reminds me that Chanukah starts tomorrow night. Saturnalia is already underway. Christmas eve is just 5 days away. The new year is just a week after that. There are a host of other holidays from many different cultures that exist at this time of year to share light and happiness.
I was going to send this out as my card for the year... but I reconsidered.
