The holidays are in full swing here in Brevard County. To quote a time-honored song, “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” for most of us. Perhaps the holidays bring out your inner child as magical memories of seasons past dance in your head. If you are religious, you’ll be observing the holidays with reverence and contemplation of your faith. Many of us enjoy the holidays as a secular but festive and meaningful time to be with the ones we love and celebrate life in all its beauty.
