Happy Holidays





Maybe it is the 
Italian
in me..

but I love a good celebration..

great food..
candlight..
glorious music..








I always looked forward to the 
Holidays..

perhaps because there are so many of them..



Saint Nicholas Day... 
Fiesta of Our Lady of Guadalupe... 
St. Lucia Day... 
Hanukkah ....
Christmas Day... 
Three Kings Day/Epiphany ...
 Boxing Day
 Kwanzaa... 
Solstice..



to name just a few...







this time of year is marked

in 
celebration










all over the world..








and what always
makes me smile 
is how much we have 
in common..









there are presents..








and candles..











lights and parties..
and perhaps you are like us,
celebrating
a couple of traditions

as well...








but whatever occasions
you mark..







I send you the richest blessings..

as I am reminded 
that we call them
the 
Holidays 
for a reason..
and
we all celebrate
one thing
together..

wishing you all a 
prosperous and healthy..

New Year..
