Holiday greens

Under the dull sky of winter, do not resign yourself to a yard that's all gray and deep asleep. Satisfy your yen for color and life by planting evergreens-- the shrubs and trees that hang onto their leaves and stay green in spite of the cold. Regina Murphy thinks the rhododendron and yew at her door (above) were probably planted when the house was built 50 years ago. She says, "I like these evergreens. They look so beautiful in the snow and they hold the promise of spring." Good enough, eh?

Our Eight Nights of Light

In Connecticut, where December nights can be cold and dark, there's nothing more inviting than the soft glow of candles in the window. Each night for eight nights, we light an additional candle in the menorah, an event that seems as special for adults as it is for children. Perhaps it's because the essence of Hanukkah is expressed in that single moment, when light prevails over darkness, and we're reminded to make the world a better place. For my family, friends, and neighbors, I try to make sure that the festivities within our home are as wonderful as the announcement in our window-- it's Hanukkah!

Naughty or Nice

Santa, looking remarkably like a crash test dummy, arrived early this year for makers of several sport/utility vehicles. Elves at the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety made their list, checked it twice, and found that none of the eight vehicles they tested were naughty-- at least not from a safety standpoint-- and four of them were pretty nice.

Tell me a story

My father was an artist. He painted scenes, drew portraits, and sculpted faces. But to me he was an artist with words, a storyteller. With his voice, his facial expression, and his mimetic gestures, he helped me "paint" pictures with my mind's eye.

Hope: A Gift to Your Children

Parents are challenged, especially during uncertain times, to reassure their children. You want to meet their needs, but you don't have to have all the answers, says Judith A. Myers-Walls, Ph.D., associate professor of developmental studies at Purdue University. It's OK to say, "I'm scared too." Then find ways to deal with your children's concerns. And stay calm-- kids feel less threatened if their parents do not seem angry or agitated.
