    Merry Christmas 2021 (#15)

    Both 2020 and 2021 have been rough on us, so I wanted to do an episode where I can just say a few words about Christmas. Christmas can take on different meanings for different people, but I want to tell you what this holiday has meant for me growing up and what it means for me now.
