Happy New Year! If you are reading this, congratulations, the holidays are over!
How was it? Did you make it out OK? Usually it’s easy for me to observe the holiday chaos. This year the Christmas cheer hit my house in a mellow way, so my face was buried in cookbooks, crafting, and being a hermit with my kids. It’s like I fell into a portal and landed in the 1950s. Also with the power going out quite a bit the past months, lighting good old-fashioned candles was nice and vintage (and made the house smell good). What appropriate timing for those who own menorahs!
