December 23, 2013 – As we approach the end of the year, I hope all of yEd and Talia with Sophia and Allegraou are in a holiday mood. I certainly am!

During the year, I tend to focus in my blogs on politics and culture, and too often on what is seriously wrong with them. But the whole point of living in a free society and a healthy, rational culture is that we can focus on our own pursuits, our own dreams, and the things in life that we, as individuals, love.

One of the things I enjoy is producing my commentaries; I hope you find them informative and enlightening. And as my twins approach their third birthday, I find my self-discipline seriously challenged; I want to write reams and reams about just how happy and fulfilled I am as a father!

I hope each of you take the time to reflect on those things that give you joy. There’s a synergy in this season, when we each take joy in our own lives and see the joy of others.

To enhance your holiday mood, I offer my past reflections on “ The Four ‘Cs’ Of Christmas.

And here are some thoughts I offered on “ Why We Give Gifts.

I wish you all the very happiest of holidays!
