This last week of 2010 was special for me as I renewed the acquaintanceship of someone I knew when we both were in a previous life in another hemisphere. It was nice reminiscing with Karen and helps remind me that sometimes we gain and keep friends as we move through life-it's not always a series of hellos and goodbyes. In this case, it was hello again.
In that spirit of sharing I wanted to pass along a custom we observe every year in my house, brought with us to the New World from the Old Country. This is, I think, the first year in the last twenty-eight (!) that my wife and I will be alone for the New Year. We started watching this presentation when it was just us and I hope you enjoy it as much as we always did when we watched it with our children and still do by ourselves (again). Guten Rutsch!
