"I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys." - Charles Dickens
I love that book. And though there are many different traditions and holidays at this time of year, I like to believe that Dickens was right: this is the time of year when people seem to open their hearts a little more, no matter what they celebrate.
Happy holidays everyone! :) After last Monday's musing, I realized how many of you have had difficult years. Extra special wishes of warmth and joy to you!
Oh! Did anyone else see The Harlot featured in the Sunday NY Times for coining the phrase "to Kinnear"? How cool is that?! :)
