Here comes Santa Claus!
Santa has assured me that his visits to the region have just begun, and I plan to keep my eye on his travels as the holiday celebrations are now officially underway. Any thoughts of humbug have vanished, thanks to the incredible community spirit around every corner. I plan to light the candles (Hanukkah begins on the 21st), spin the dreidel and join my friends and family as we all celebrate the diversity and sheer joy that the holiday season conjures up for us all. I might even break down, shop local and give a few gifts along the way.
