Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, Joyous Kwanzaa … Happy Festival Season!

As we move into the longest night of the year many faiths and cultures are celebrating, or have just finished celebrating “festivals of light”. It is remarkable how many central themes of these festivals are so similar. Even more remarkable is the fact that these festivals are celebrated all over the world at the same time of year just like they have been celebrated for so many years in the past. I think it really underlines just how much we all have in common as a species. No matter what you celebrate this time of the year take time to celebrate with family and friends and take time to reflect on our “gifts”.
