Happy Holidays Meltingpot readers!
I hope you're having a wonderful holiday filled with laughter and light. I flew through two major storms today to make it home for the holidays with my family and believe it or not, arrived home twenty minutes early. I call it a Christmas miracle.
I'm hoping everyone is having a wonderful holiday season, but I do have a question. If you don't celebrate Christmas, for religious or cultural reasons, I'm wondering what does this time of the year mean for you? While the rest of the country is celebrating the birth of the baby Jesus and/or the arrival of a big fat man dressed in a red suit who breaks into your house to leave gifts, what are you doing?
I had a Jewish friend who always went out for Chinese food on Christmas day. He said it was a tradition with all of his friends. What about your traditions? I'd like to know what December 25th feels like when you're not part of the holiday madness?
