Happy Holidays


Something I Enjoyed in 2016: One of my greatest joys this past holiday season was replying to a “Merry Christmas” offered by a retail associate or receptionist with “Happy Holidays.” It’s akin to the 3 years I made sure my mother-in-law’s Christmas gift was wrapped in “Season’s Greetings” wrapping paper after she forwarded an annoying email about keeping Christ in Christmas that one time. (I’m off her distribution list now)

Resolution for 2017: Next year I’d like to start replying with “Happy Hanukkah” when someone wishes me a “Blessed Christmas.” We’ll see how that goes. I’m looking forward to it.
