I looked up the definition for Yuletide; “of or relating to the Christmas Season”. In our family these days this season lasts well into January as a family member who visits from a distance prefers to wait out the holiday craziness associated with airline travel and often weather delays and is better assured of good alpine conditions for fun on the slopes. I’ve come to really appreciate this slower stepping through,  finding the lengthening of our personal Christmastime a gift; one to hold up to the light and breathe in every bit of goodness and love that is offered. Joy and Gratitude shines in it’s reflection.
