What’s your remedy for the Holiday blues?
I try to immerse myself in the sights, sounds, and smells of the season.
Your favorite beverage (if it differs) during the holiday season?
I know many people will answer “eggnog” but that has never been favorite of mine. For me, a mulled wine, something with cinnamon, says “Christmas”
This one has been asked before, but what’s your take on pumpkin spice?
I don’t take it, I’ll leave it, thank you.
Is there a person or god connected with your holiday?
I suspect that most will answer with a resounding “Jesus is the reason for the season.”
I believe much of that, but as an agnostic, not all.
I was raised a Catholic and my faith, although diminished, perseveres.
I believe that Jesus existed and that he was, at the very least, a prophet, and that Christianity is based on his teachings.
With that in mind I celebrate Christmas as a spiritual birth of a religion based on charity and grace and I go forth in this world practicing these characterizations, not with the goal of heaven in an after life but to share JoY and light here on earth, as Jesus did.
Share a song that you enjoy during this Winter season.
My mother loved Christmas music and passed that on to me.
This is one of her favorites :The Christmas Song by Nat King Cole
