Valentine’s Day 2022 is history now, but I’m going to pay homage to it, anyway. It’s a nice mid-winter interlude, and the celebration gives us a smidgen of hope for spring … even though stores rush it (like every holiday) by putting out Valentine’s Day cards on Dec. 26. I swear I’ve seen that at Target.

“Keep the Light Shining”

The crescendo of the Christmas season starts up in November, and for the most part, comes crashing to a halt on Dec. 26th. My late father-in-law refused to wait until December 26th for Christmas to be over. According to Mangas family lore, my father-in-law always had the family’s white-flocked artificial tree taken down and put away by Christmas afternoon. This is in direct juxtaposition to my side of the family. My two sisters and I begged our widowed mother to let us keep our real tree up as long as possible, and she always caved. It didn’t come down until the branches were brittle, pine needles littered the floor and it had morphed into a serious fire hazard. I think one year our tree was up until the end of January!
