For the most part, we celebrate Christmas. We decorate our houses; invite friends and family over, exchange gifts, and some travel to family gatherings. Celebrations this time of year can transcend the religious beliefs if we let them. Before Christianity claimed the season as its own, people worked hard at celebrating the season and there are a lot of reasons they did.

If you've got good people around you, the weather is secondary.

I can't stand snow. I grew up in western Washington, in other words 90% of my childhood was here. But I still can't stand cold weather. When I was down in Tucson for a couple years, I loved it .... but all holidays feel like just another day to me, and they always have.

I'm really sorry about that. I think there's good and bad everywhere. I don't know what else to say without seeming trite.

Let's catch up in a few days or so.
