Holiday cards are having their moment. Companies like Minted, Tiny Prints and Shutterfly have revolutionized the way we create and send cards. I arrive home each day to find small stacks of holiday tidings that fill my home with photos of friends and family, near and far, who all hold a special place in my heart.
With messages of Joy, Peace and Love calling out, my favorite of all is Merry Everything!
Merry Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Diwali, Lunar New Year and more! It reminds me of a December years ago when I was touring preschools for my oldest child. I came across a school whose four-year-olds were diligently decorating gingerbread houses. “We celebrate EVERYTHING around here,” the tour guide told me. The room was resplendent with art work of holidays come and gone and the purity of children who participated in celebrating each one.
It stuck with me. Finding the joy in our similarities and differences is a powerful way to introduce our children into a kinder, gentler, more harmonious world.
During this holiday season, we wish you and your loved ones Merry Everything!
