Happy holidays from everyone at Together Magazine


Happy holidays, everyone!

Let it snow
Making a list so that no one is missed. A kiss beneath the mistletoe – let it snow. Shopping and more shopping, a robin hopping on the garden gate. Wrapping gifts, his and her. Marshmallows toasting as you’re hosting your guests. Walks in the park and a heart-warming movie after dark. Child in a manger in the Grand Place, what more could you ask? A roaring hearth and much mirth as the big day dawns. A fragrant package from Paris or Rome. A brandnew tie, smiles on the faces of people going by. Turkey and ham and, without a doubt, some Brussels sprouts. Mulled wine and eyes that shine. The joy on children’s faces, both girl and boy. And did you know that every time a bell rings an angel gets her wings?
Have a very Happy Christmas and a guid New Year from all of us at Together.

Pushing it a little further, we can ask ourselves what would happen if the two wings didn’t belong to
the same bird? Would the bird be able to fly then? No, it would fall out of the sky in a twisted spiral, to meet its destiny…
