Welcome back!

Happy Chanukah, Merry Christmas! The solstice has passed. The sun is returning! It may be 16 degrees out now, but spring will come again. Let's celebrate!

Do you have a holiday tradition? Jon and I light my family's old menorah. Usually, we save our presents for each other till the last night. But with the storm and all, we gave each other one present each on Sunday! (He got a bottle of Scotch, as human anti-freeze; I got an Edward Gorey cat pin!) We're seeing lots of friends over the next two weeks, folks coming to town and others who just finally have time. And on Christmas Day we're going to the movies with another friend - and then out for Chinese!

We AWAYS go to two movies during Christmas day and then order in Chinese food (or go out.) It is my favorite thing to do in the whole world. We used to celebrate Xmas when max was younger and Santa would always leave him a letter marked "from the desk of Santa Clause" and would leave him a different vegetable every year in a futile attempt to get him to eat some Now we light a menorrah and make latkes .

Happy holidays to you and Jon with much love.
