So it is the time of year when the days are getting shorter and shorter, its getting darker when we go to and come home from work. Pretty depressing right!
But, luckily, we have many reasons to celebrate in this dark time. I think that we as cultures intentionally at some point in our history, put celebrations right at this point in time to have something great to balance out the darkness.
So Christmas, Hanukkah, Solstice, Kwanzaa? What are you celebrating? What are your traditions? How do the holidays help you practice being grateful?
One of my favorite traditions is baking povitica, a Russian bread, that we make at the holiday time. The smell is wonderful, and waking up early to eat a warm slice on a cold morning is a great memory that we renew every year.
