Christmas is a day that brings up a range of emotions. If your day doesn’t feel merry, that’s also normal.
In a world that never shuts off, the silent night is gift, even if Christmas isn’t your holiday.
Some characterize New York City on Christmas as “dead.” To me, it feels very much alive.
There’s a magic that happens — a sort of alchemy — when you string lights around the frame of a house or even around a small shrub in the front lawn.
The Christmas spirit need not be tied to the calendar or the season. We can embody the Christmas spirit throughout the year.
Christmas may not be “my” holiday, but that doesn’t mean I can’t celebrate it. It’s not about religion, but about values.
Simple rituals. A celebration of values. A space in which we can see, hear, and feel. A moment where time stops. Any day can be a holy day.
