I made the above photo banner in 2013 to celebrate the idea, not just of Christmas, but of holiday cheer that cuts across religious and cultural boundaries. Whether you’re ripping paper off gifts, eating Christmas dinner at a Chinese restaurant (as is a cultural tradition in many Jewish American families), dancing around a pagan bonfire, celebrating Kwanzaa or just doing nothing at all, I hope you do it well, peacefully and merrily.

Have a wonderful holiday and happy New Year!
