It’s the most terrible time, of the year

For me, Christmas time is the best time of the year. I like the decorations, the traditions, the Christmas liturgies and midnight masses. Christmas is a reminder that we, as Americans, are a people with a past, we came from somewhere and despite everything, we’ve retained much of that past, even if it is in vestigial form.

The weeks following new years however, are a bit glum. It’s particularly empty this year, with temperatures in the south below freezing. I look forward to Spring.
