Episode #6 Season 2 Speaking of Holiday 2020 Guests: A sampling of some of my favorite people who are creative givers and lovers of holiday traditions. On this episode we are looking for the bright side of Holiday 2020! I asked some friends what tradition they will have to go without this year, and what new tradition they are replacing the old one with. I hope you get some good ideas for your own holiday celebrations! Stay healthy and stay in touch with the people you love. Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukkah! Happy Kwanzaa! And with a big sigh of relief …. Happy 2021!
