Warming wishes to you, dear readers!

It’s December, the lovely month of holiday decorations and songs and beautiful lights everywhere. Hanukkah came very early this year, beginning on November 28 and lasting for eight days. And here come Christmas and Kwanzaa, almost right behind! This month brings many people together. It’s a time to reflect on childhood memories. Whether it’s Hanukkah, Christmas or Kwanzaa, we are all drawn to candle lighting and the symbolism of this tradition. Candles cast away darkness and show ways to happier times. They can represent life after death. Candles develop a romantic atmosphere and create a comfortable and relaxing environment, and they are symbols of ongoing hope and faith. Light candles and be joyful. To me, this holiday season is more about opening hearts rather than opening presents. It’s an extra chance to remind your family and friends how much you love and care for them. Blessings of good health to each of you — and the happiest of holidays from the Oyster Pointer family to yours!
