This year, my husband and I are celebrating the holidays alone for our second year in a row. We’ll be at home in California, away from his family in St. Louis, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. I am immunocompromised, so travel is not an option. We have cats (who can’t be near pine needles), I was raised Jewish, but celebrated some Christmases growing up with my Maley side of the family, and others in Maui, and I am now somewhere in between a Wiccan and a Buddhist.
