This year, the final 8th day of Chanukah and Christmas Eve happen to fall on the same day. In addition, Kwanzaa follows just a day after Christmas. It is rare for all three holidays to fall so close together.
Thinking about so many different celebrations, for different reasons, going on at essentially the same time, it brings to mind that while our differences sometimes divide us, it is our similarities that should, and do, unite us.
However you celebrate, I hope that this holiday time of year will bring you happiness, peace, love, and perhaps a gift or two!
Wishing you good cheer, good times, good friends, good laughs, and the warmth of family.
