No Bah-Humbug – enjoy real holiday magic

Gathering together with family over Thanksgiving, shared memories came up for discussion from earlier days together in the family circle. With the darkest day of the year approaching — Winter Solstice, Dec. 21 — my sister and I talked of Christmas remembrances together and then apart as we grew, married and had our children. Some were shining and happy, some ho-hum, and some either disappointing, lonely or sad. My husband offered some of his look-backs, too. One thing stood out above all else: Christmastime is really for the children.
