What do the holidays mean for you? For so many people, it is a time to get together with family and friends. It is a time of sharing food and drinks, giving and receiving of gifts, and often reminiscing of memories fond and sometimes even funny. It is festive lights and decorations, wonder and anticipation for the young (and even some of the old), and a time take a pause from the day to day reality and relish in a moment of bliss.
I've spent many holidays in different places, but that time between mid-December and mid-January, it is my favourite time of the year. This year, I have lived this experience in beautiful Spain. What do the cities in your country look like? Do you take the time to stop and look? Admire the beauty this time of year offers. Depending on where in the world you are, you may be in the middle of a cold, snowy winter wonderland or a lush, tropical, summer dream. Wherever you might be, I hope it's full of lots of lights, and that you take time to admire them.
