The Power of a Christmas Wish

Have you ever thought about what you might remember years from now about the Christmas we have just celebrated? I hope it will be something that makes you feel good as you recall the Christmas of 2014. Every year we spend hours looking for the perfect gift for friends and family. But most of the time it is not the gift that really matters. It is the spirit it is given in.

Challenge yourself with your New Year resolutions

Have you ever thought of the challenge many of us take on every new year? It is the tradition of making resolutions for the year we are about to enter. The calendar we live with turns the page for a new year on Jan. 1. Have you ever thought that almost always the world we face on Jan. 1 is the same one we left on Dec. 31? But the tradition of making New Year's Resolutions is a reminder that though the world might not change, we can change some things about our own lives.

Kwanzaa: Honoring community

It was during the peak of the civil rights movement that the cultural holiday of Kwanza was born. Unlike other similar holidays such as Hanukah and Christmas, Kwanzaa is not based upon religious association. This holiday was created to celebrate the life and the heritage of African culture seen in African and Pan African communities around the world.

Don't forget food safety this holiday

Keeping the faith

Making a fundamental change in your lifestyle – one that's going to stick – is not always easy.

I have found that the key to handling those down moments is what I have made my new mantra: Keep the Faith.

Japan looks back

Japan is working hard at forgetting. Its prime minister, Shinzo Abe, suggests in code-talk that Japan was the victim of World War II - no war criminals at all, thank you - and its influential conservative press, with a wink from the government, is determined to whitewash the country's use of sex slaves during the war. This sort of thing can be catching. Maybe others will forget why they consider Japan a friend.
