"A story beats with the heart of every person who has ever strained ears to listen. On the breath of the storyteller, it soars. Until its images and deeds become so real you can see them in the air, shimmering like oases on the horizon line." Cameron Dokey, The Storyteller's Daughter

Deck the halls with storytelling!  Fa la la la la la la la la!  What a wonderful season to connect with family and friends and renew old acquaintances (lest they be forgot).  While you are doing all this "connecting", don't forget to tell stories to each other...we do that, anyway.  Make sure your children and grandchildren know about holiday traditions in your family's past and make new traditions that you will all cherish in the future.  This is the season of remembering the greatest of Gifts that was ever given, and also remembering those who may be less fortunate by giving our time, talents and even finances to help. Have a Merry Christmas; Happy Holidays; Happy New Year.  And remember to include storytelling (and storytellers) in your plans.
