As I was driving home recently and thinking about what makes this time of year so different from other holidays, it dawned on me. What makes it unique is the sense of marvel and lightness that fills our hearts and minds. It‘s the ability for us for a brief moment to be amazed – amazed at the sparkling lights in the cold dark, the anticipation of the decorations and festivities, and the ability to recall childhood and delights of the simple things that at the time seemed so big and overwhelming. It was all so simple and sublime, and for a brief moment every year, we have it in our hands again.
My hope for the season is that we take what we love from our holiday and carry those feelings of joy and amazement into every day of the coming year. We have the opportunity to bid the current year farewell and to embrace the New Year with excitement and optimism.
We would also like to remind everyone that we will be closed tomorrow and Friday (Dec. 24-25) and next Thursday afternoon and all day Friday (Dec. 31 & Jan 1)to celebrate the holidays and spend time with our friends and family. On behalf of the BrandDirections team I wish you all the best for a joyous, awe-filled holiday and a very happy New Year.
