Between Thanksgiving and New Year’s many of us in the West, as believers in one of the three major religions (Christianity, Islam, and Judaism), hold numerous celebrations. Also the advocates of Kwanzaa hold observances bringing in the new year. These are generally considered holy days.

Over five decades back, when I was in high school, I was driving home one night coming from a party. This song came on the radio. I had heard it often times before, but on this particular night, Nat King Cole almost made me swoon. The beauty and clarity of his rendition was absolutely breath-taking. Even today, it remains an emotional touchstone at this time of the year.

Be well. Be safe.
