Hanukkah and Christmas overlap this year, and they won’t again until 2027, so let’s celebrate all that unites us.
I wish for you and your families a Merry Hanukkamas and a Happy Christnukkah!
I didn’t intend to blog today but wanted to share this video from a couple of nights ago. In midtown Toronto, many neighbours of Inglewood Drive do something unique for the holidays. This year, forty-five of them have installed giant-sized, inflatable Santa Clauses on their front lawns. Each measure over fourteen feet, and they’re quite the sight!
Accompanied by an upbeat song, “Birdman” by John Beadle, I hope you enjoy the video … and have a wonderful Christmas day!

Tomorrow night Hannukah begins.
In less than two weeks Christmas arrives.
No matter how busy, frazzled, or rushed you feel, don’t forget to breathe and enjoy this special time. Here’s Bill Withers and one of my favorite songs.
Have a lovely day and a lovely week,
This blog is unscheduled, off the cuff, and it’s going to be a hodge podge of stuff, so bear with me. It’s yearend, Christmas, and nobody’s going to read this anyway – but what the heck?
Firstly, an update to my post of earlier this week called “Stories from a Holiday Heart.” The publication of the book has been seized. I know that sounds severe, but I’m just playing with words. Actually, our delightful editor, R. Jeffreys is looking for a different publisher at the moment, so I will let you know when it is available again. Though disappointed it will not be available for the holidays, I appreciate your continued support of my writing endeavours.
Early in December, I sent out five parcels to the United Kingdom – Christmas gifts for friends. I am almost certain at this moment they’ve been seized by the Royal Mail system. They were all sent at the same time, and only one of them got through. My tiny “Eden’s Edibles” are probably in the “seized overseas” parcels department. Bah!
As of December 31st, the last of my five parcels arrived at its U.K. destination. I’m eating crow, and the recipients are eating my cookies! I extend my sincere apologies to the Royal Mail system. 🙂
“C” is for Christmas, something I now celebrate after not doing so for many years. I used to observe Hannukah because of the significant person in my life at the time. Now, I am happy to return to Christmas — tree, gifts, lights. The one constant, however, (that’s another “c”) is family and friends. Christmas has never been a religious event for me, but it’s always involved the people I care about, plenty of food, fun, conversation and laughter. No matter how you celebrate, I hope you have a wonderful Christmas, and my best to you for 2012.
