This is a season that mixes whether snow and rain or sleet and hail or sun and shadow, it is a mix.
We are in the darkest part of the year, yet expecting light.
We expect cold, and we experience Spring like weather.
All the stores are open for extended hours after Thanksgiving, and then shut - even slammed shut for a quick nap before reducing the prices of merchandise that was of such value before.
We eat all we can stand, only to make a promise for the new year that we won't do that again.
Are we confused?
Probably not - well, not entirely.
A mix is essential for a good recipe.
A mix requires some balancing and it may take some time to get it right.
Maybe our mixes do just that - keep us balanced.
Here's to a balanced new year - trusting all we mix will come out quite well.
