What’s Your Holiday Magic?

Holly and her husband, Dave.

On Saturday, Holly, who cares for her husband, joined me for Table Talk as she does every third Saturday of every month. You can listen to our show via the player below.

Holly and I discussed her holidays plans and the adjustments she makes to her traditions to accommodate her husband. Holly also shared the magic she feels during the holidays during the early morning quiet of her day, when she lights her candles.

I’d love to know: What’s a magical moment for you during the holidays? Please share in our comments section, below.

    Ever since I was very young, the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day has been magical for me. As a kid I watched all the retrospective specials and listened to the pop song countdown for the past year. The world seemed to come to a standstill.

    As an adult, part of the magic involved taking part in Boston’s First Night celebrations. I had been in its Procession twice, which involved (among many other things) plaster of Paris heads of the Roman god Janus — who possessed two heads, one to look back, another to look forward.

    My “magic week” is a time when I engage in reflection and feel that sense of standstill. It becomes a meditation for me.
