Editorial: Happy holidays

December 13, 2013

With the holidays here and the official start of winter on the way, we hope you enjoy this unique time of celebration and reflection.

Hanukkah, the Jewish commemoration of the rededication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, ended last week. On Christmas, Dec. 25, Christians mark the birth of Jesus. The winter solstice arrives Dec. 21, and the new year of 2014 will be here in just over two weeks.

Whether you celebrate any of these occasions or simply enjoy the season’s presents and parties, we wish you the best and a good new year.
