'Tis the Season . . .



Here in New York, the gorgeous Christmas decorations are everywhere—perhaps most prominent on the storefronts of Fifth Avenue, but nonetheless rippling outward to the East River and the Hudson. There's nothing quite like it. So we hope you'll forgive our being a little distracted, as we editors take a short break from the Verily blog this month!

We know you probably have just as many holiday distractions in your own towns and cities. There's a lot of preparing to do–finding the perfect party dress, cooking tasty goodies, navigating awkward dinnertable conversation, and finding the right gift!

So, let's embrace the blessed distractions of the season. We will be working hard to bring you more great content in the new year. (Which reminds me, now is a good time to subscribe or give a gift subscription to our print magazine!) In the meantime, we editors of Verily wish you a beautiful and memorable holiday!
