I love the holidays. I love the music, I love gift giving (and getting 😉) and I love spending time with my family. The holidays can overwhelm many, because they feel a lot of pressure to spend money and attend every performance and party. It can get overwhelming to be perfectly honest. But I think if you remember what these holidays are all about, it will keep your spirits bright. Christmas is about the birth of Jesus Christ, while Hanukah celebrates the re-dedication of the second temple in Jerusalem during the Maccabean Revolt. Kwanza celebrates African heritage and Winter Solstice recognizes the Earth's shortest daylight while marveling at the beauty of nature. No matter what you celebrate, or why, I think there is one defining thing that ties all of these together and that is love. 
Even when the Christmas programs, gift wrapping and holiday parties get overwhelming I hope you can wrap yourself in true meaning of The Holidays. Feel the love of those who have invited you, feel the love you have for those you are wrapping those gifts for. Feel the love of your deity and the earth. Feel the love of your family you are baking those cookies for. Love is Everything.

This is my favorite holiday song and I am going to share it with you because I feel it helps me to recenter and refocus this time of year. Slow down you hustle and bustle. Feel the love and happy holidays ♥
