'Tis the season to be jolly

I'm one of those people who adores Christmas. Even as I race around trying to meet all the extra demands – the gathering of appropriate gifts, decorating, cooking, cleaning, card writing – I am suffused with a feeling of well-being and happiness. I become an optimist. I try to remember all the good things that happened to me during the year and everyone who contributed to making my life feel richer.

I enjoy making gifts for friends and family. It is the one time of year that is all set up for expressing our gratitude for all the many blessings of living on this planet, in this funny old world of ours. Why not ride the wave of joy and thanksgiving? In thinking how I could express my gratitude to you, my blog followers, I thought of a gift I could give you, which will hopefully inspire you to whimsy, playfulness, beauty and fun. My favorite YouTube video of the year:


Happy Holidays to all!
