It’s Official! The Winter Holidays are Upon Us!
Girl Scouts volunteered to help with decorations and serving the dinner, then sang Christmas carols a capella. Aurora Finetti (second from right) wrapped up the performance with a solo rendition of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”
Nothing could have been more festive than this year’s Sages Holiday Dinner to officially begin the many ways for us to celebrate the season of light and joy.

The Canyon Chronicle has a selection of holiday events to brighten your holiday (Page 14). Kathie Gibboney’s “A ‘Bah, Humbug’ Christmas Carol for 2022” actually has a happy-ish ending (Page 13), and if you want an escape from the holiday frenzy, Sarah Spitz offers a play, Academy Award press screenings, and a film festival at MOMA at the Hammer Museum (Page 10).

Our center spread, “In Faith Hope Rises,” we are reminded of the deeper meaning of the season with stories of everyday miracles that you might not notice except through faith. (Pages 8-9).

Reminding us that ordinary life goes on is an invitation to Know Your Town Council (Page 4); Paula LaBrot’s cautionary tale about Cryptocurrency (Page 12); Help for women athletes who want to stay active (Page 6); and a new book of poems, “QuarantineHighway,” by Millicent Borges-Accardi.

The barefoot elf, Randy Just, tended the blazing yule log.
The Canyon Chronicle has one more edition for this year, December 23, where, among other things, Astrologist Kait Leonard will look to the stars for a world view of anticipated events for 2023. After that, we go on hiatus until our first edition of 2023 appears on January 20.
We wish everyone the best of the season and into the New Year.
In an annual tradition, Linda Hinrichs recited an excerpt from “The Velveteen Rabbit,” by Margery Williams with illustrations by William Nicholson.
