The Good News and the People Making it Happen
Christmas seems to come at us faster and faster – decorations hit store shelves, the lights get put up, special events are planned, ugly sweaters are bought, cookies are made, cookies are eaten, families gather and then, it seems as if in a blink it is time to pack it all away. The ornaments come off the tree. The wrapping paper gets discarded or recycled. The cold continues but the spirit of the holiday feeds.
This year and every year, my Christmas wish is for us all to hold on to the magic of the season as long as possible. I hope you leave the tree up and keep the stockings on the hearth as long as you please. I hope you keep flicking the Christmas lights on and keep baking things to share with your co-workers. I hope you don’t get tired of Christmas music, and that you keep binging Christmas movies long after December 25th.
I hope you continue to celebrate anything and everything that brings you and your loved ones both comfort and joy.
As always, we cover stories of good news in this edition of Premiere. And per usual for the time of year, we cover upcoming festivities and ideas for enjoying the season. I hope these stories spark both comfort and joy.
Merry Christmas NEA. We look forward to more good news in the new year.
