It’s that time of year where most of us go into supercharged mode in anticipation of the holidays. Yet during all this joyful, and unfortunately sometimes stressful, preparation, I know I have to remind myself repeatedly that all that really needs to be done will get done…and if it doesn’t get done….well….then maybe it’s because it really didn’t NEED to be done!
Annually the Conference House here in Tottenville offers a break from the stress with a short repast back in time with the Grand Illumination and Colonial Christmas.
Did you attend the Grand Illumination last Friday night, December 2? Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to go this year to see the Conference House lit up with candles in each window, or to indulge in the hot cider and cookies while singing Christmas carols. Having attended last year, I missed that sense of community celebrating the holidays from a simpler time in Tottenville’s history.
However, I do plan to attend the Colonial Christmas at the Conference House on Sunday, December 11 at some point during their hours of 10:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m. Hopefully all goes well for me to attend, and if so, I would love for readers of this blog to come up to me so that I can share some in- person time with you who share so much online time with me each week.
