From the middle of November through the middle of January we celebrate. We celebrate Dagny's birthday, Thanksgiving, Jon's birthday, Winter Solstice with our family, Christmas with my side of the family, Chanukah with Jon's side of the family, New Year's Eve, Rowan's birthday, and Andrew's birthday. Streamers go up and come down in November, a tree and stockings appear and disappear in December, more streamers go up in January.
Today the streamers come down. And I will build a fire and bake bread and make soup and celebrate the everyday.
