New Year's Resolutions

It's that time again.  Time for the start of a new year, and the annual effort to make ourselves new, too. Losing weight, being on time, controlling our tempers, spending less money, etc.

So, characters and authors, what would your New Year's resolution be?  I know many people (including myself) have given up trying to defeat old habits, or perhaps just come to terms with our imperfections, and don't make resolutions anymore.

But if you had to make one resolution, what would it be???

Getting to Know You: Winter Holidays


Baby, it's cold outside! And dark. The days are getting shorter and shorter here in the northern hemisphere. In a couple of weeks we will have the shortest day of the year, which we call the Winter Solstice.

Humans have a way of defying the cold and dark with holidays and festivals. We have many of them!

What do you celebrate this time of year? Is it cold where you are now, or is it warm? How do you bring cheer to your year?
