Christmas is the holiday I celebrate this time of year.
Whatever holiday you mark, across traditions there are ideas and celebrations to do with connection, love, and light, and hope for the coming year.

Photographs from three rather different places to go along with that idea

*a mailbox welcoming the season in the northwest Florida panhandle

*a Christmas tree, streetlights, and the lighted window in the steeple of First Parish Church in Harvard Square in Cambridge, Massachusetts

*holiday star lights reflected in windows in Carlingford, County Louth, Republic of Ireland

for a bit of holiday reading to go along

listen in as three musicians share holiday music memories

consider music and quiet

as well as a thoughtful holiday recording
