I've recently started posting on Substack. (You can see my stuff here.) A lot of what I'm posting are articles and blog posts that I wrote many years ago, but that are still (sadly, in many cases) very relevant today.
This is one of them. I wrote it at Christmastime five years ago, and it is even more true in today's world.
Following my piece is my husband, reading the timeless "Rules of Christmas."
Enjoy. And Merry Christmas.
