I was never one for Christmas music.

Allowing a little enchantment

The difference between most things, even those that seem really far away, like sorrow and joy, or a really good mood and a really bad mood, is little.

Reflections in ornaments


Marjorie Otto/Review Most of Marjorie Otto’s holiday ornaments hold special memories or meanings, like the tiny red mailbox her grandma gave her years ago with a note she left inside it. Though her grandmother passed away years ago, Otto still takes the note out every year to read it.

I often think of my boxes of Christmas ornaments as some kind of time travel devices.

Family and Christmas tea


Pamela O’Meara/Review High tea is becoming a family tradition for Pamela O’Meara.

What better way to kick off the holiday season than with a fancy five-course tea at the St. Paul Hotel downtown with my daughter and granddaughter?

Can you get a six-pack from laughter?


Hannah Burlingame/Review Hannah Burlingame’s annual holiday cookie baking with family often turns into a mini concert, complete with horrible dancing and singing. Trying to get cookies out of burning-hot tins does not work well when you are hunched over laughing.

With the holiday season comes plenty of family events ... sometimes, whether I want it to or not. From small gatherings to 30-plus people, there’s no shortage of things to go to.

Towards invisible barriers

The 14-hour drive started at 5 a.m. in Montana, where I’d lived until that morning. My headlights couldn’t see far into the predawn snowstorm, and the car was skewing a bit sideways across the icy bridges.
