If I let a holiday that I would normally be celebrating with my family at home slip by without fanfare, I feel like I’m losing myself. Even though our place is so squishy small, and we have to completely transformer-size our space in our to accommodate anything more than another couple for dinner, it’s worth all the headache. Even when exhausted. Even when broke. Even on a Wednesday. Even when I’m the only jew. I’m so happy to have the kind of fantastic friends who are always on board to ring in a New Year, even in September.
