Musings on the Making of a Holiday
The multi-talented Kourtenaye Monroe is one of our beloved volunteers at NWFFest.
It hit me like a punch in the gut or a slap in the face.
Most of us have done it -- sent that mass text or email to all those people we may have wanted to keep in touch with throughout the year, but just didn't get around to it.
OH wow, is it that time again already!? Happy Thanksgiving! Happy Chanukah! Have a great time celebrating Kwanzaa! Merry Christmas! Happy New Year!
It’s a simple way to let those we care for know they are not forgotten, though we may not be in each other's lives the way we once were. But when the text response from my high school friend came back with a terse: We don't celebrate holidays, it shook me.
