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 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!
