Dear People Celebrating the Festival of Lights just now:
Happy Hannukah to you and yours!
Dear People Celebrating Winter Solstice tomorrow:
Hooray for the return of the light!
Dear People Celebrating the birth of the Christ Child:
No matter what our faith may be, I think we can all - especially this time of year, this far north - celebrate the miracle of Light in the darkness. Spring will, indeed, come ‘round again, the days will, indeed, get lighter, there is, always, hope of redemption, hope of new beginnings.
May there be peace and light for us all.
A hopeful believer
