The holidays are a time for caring and sharing. Outside of a wedding or a funeral, Thanksgiving and Christmas may be the most time we spend with family all year. Whether you’re spending time with family or friends, new acquaintances or old, this is truly a time to take stock in the people and things that matter most. Take a few words of wisdom from some people who know.
