It seems like there is a special and wonderful time after Christmas when the lights and ornaments are up but there isn’t any anxiety about it all, and you can just relax and happily contemplate your surroundings. This is that time. My part of the city is one of the best places for that. It’s not the most chic or expensive but it is full of sincerity and the happiness from people who know how to celebrate holidays well. Sometimes all I can do is to contemplate the idea that life is good and just enjoy. That is what I most like to do during the week between Xmas and New Years.
