All things notwithstanding, I don't accept the "Bah! Humbug!" approach to the holidays. So from my dwelling to yours, best wishes this holiday season, whether you ceebrate Christmas, Chanukah, Ramadan [yeah, I know that has passed], the Feast of Saturnalia, the Festival of Lights or some other special occasion about which I am unfamiliar.
We live in challenging times, that note of joy must be heard if we are to remain intact.
