No matter whether you follow a religion or not, no matter what that religion may be, it’s that time of year when we try to fill those longest nights and shortest days with love, warmth, and cheer.

So to all my friends, family, and readers of this blog, happy holidays. To all those who don’t celebrate a holy day during this time of year, season’s greetings. Love to you all. And bear hugs. Although maybe don’t try to get them from real bears.
