The season is full of twinkling lights and tinkling bells; of music that brightens yet pulls at your heartstrings. It is a time of memories that cause longing and yet memories to be made. It is a time of gathering and yet a time of missing those who gathered. Fill your glass and toast to those who are and to those who are not; to those who fill your heart and to those who have torn it apart; to those who have given you memories to cherish and to those who tried to take them away. You are raising your glass to all that has come; and to all a good night.
