The winter holidays are a unique time of year. Families reunite from across the globe in celebration. It is a time to share, to give, and to recant the year past. For some it is stuffed with spiritual overtones and practice, to others, holidays are a time to imbibe the rituals of seasonal culture. So whether you dress your pine tree with family heirlooms and strands of lights, or eat Latkes in cohort and light the nightly Menorah, or simply pass neatly wrapped packages triumphant with ribbon, it is a time to revel in the good spirit, sing festive songs, and tip a glass to a season that has become a universal holiday.
