Without sounding all yoga, I have the following to say:
It takes just as much energy to be and say negative things as it does positive. This time of year – but really in all seasons – life is much more enjoyable when we spread kindness and joy.
That is all.
That, and the best darn latkes. Served with applesauce, sour cream, or my personal favorite: crisped in the skillet the next day with a fried egg and spinach.
Just try and be ungracious or petty or spiteful after eating that.
