What is your favorite winter holiday? Why?

Sharon (Editor-in-Chief):  My favorite winter holiday is New Year’s Eve. There’s this sense of freedom and relief, especially when you realize that this day marks the end of an entire cycle around the sun. In other words, you’ve survived another year. Another reason is the timing of this special holiday—it falls right after many major winter holidays, and yet it is not so far away as to detract from the special, warm feeling that only the holiday season gives. It’s the perfect day to spend with loved ones, and to remember all of your struggles, triumphs, and good memories of the past year.

Ryan (Assistant Editor): My favorite winter holiday is Christmas. It is the time of year when people remember the important values of kindness, charity and thoughtfulness. By buying presents for those I love, I remember the treasured times together and it always puts a smile on my face. When giving the gifts I always make a point of telling each person what they mean to me. Sometimes we just don’t do this often enough. Remembering the real reason for celebrating Christmas always makes me full of hope – hope for the future, hope that people will learn to love one another, and hope that the values that come out at Christmastime will last longer each year.
