Contrary to Andy William's Christmas tune, December may just well be the most stressful time of the year. Gift shopping, juggling company and personal dinner parties, nagging thoughts about not reaching one's goals; all these and many other issues could easily dampen our mood...only if we let them.
In this December issue we highlight some news-worthy articles on food in our Living and Dining segment, 10 interesting TED videos, and talks that should not be missed, as part of our countdown to 2015. We hope that these resources may help you start 2015 with the right mindset in taking a slower and more reflective pace of life. But before planning too far ahead into the future, let's enjoy our last weeks of 2014 with our loved ones and friends. As with many dinner parties, awkward silences may be inevitable. StoryCorps has provided a little help with a list of 10 questions to help us engage in more meaningful conversations with people.
We wish all our readers a merry festive season and another peaceful 2015!
