- What’s not to like about popping corks?
- Seed catalogs. Even though I’m not the one ordering. It’s just a pleasure to watch.
- Ralph Page Legacy weekend. Big New England contradance gathering one town over. You wanna talk about characters?
- Daylight already getting noticeably longer.
- Tiny colored lights ringing our bay window
- Discovering more tins of Christmas cookies she’s made.
- Getting familiar with my Christmas presents now that the hoopla’s over.
- Mozart, Schubert, and Mendelssohn’s birthdays
- Clear starry nights.
