The most wonderful time of the year is nearly here. Regardless of the specific traditions or practices observed, the holiday season tends to bring a sense of hope and joy to the world. This year, more than ever, the world needs a bit of joy and above all else, it needs hope. Despite smaller gatherings and virtual hugs on laptop screens, the holiday season can still bring much-needed light to your life and warmth to your heart. Getting your home “holiday-ready” may focus a little less on extra space at the dinner table, or crafting a meal large enough to feed a small army, but the reason for the season is still there and a focus on making your home feel like, well, home may be just the thing needed to make your season merry and bright.
