Holiday Season is Almost Here

Just yesterday, as we say when we mean “can you believe that it’s been so long,” we greeted year 2000. Some had even prepared for the end of the world timed to occur right before that date. How any amount of canned food could have saved them for the after-world-end is still debated.

Seventeen years later, Chanukah coincides with Christmas and stretches into the New Year. Whatever holiday or combination of thereof you celebrate your next year will be healthy, full of happy occasions, family reunions, exciting trips, interesting books. Because I wish you so.

My last 2016 book review is coming. Next post — in mid-January of 2017.
