Some Christmas Wisdom

by Michael Potemra

Passed on by a young woman in South Africa named Telane Landon: Friends and family are like fruitcake — some are sweet, some nutty, some soaked in alcohol, but they all add up to something positive and delicious.

I recognize that Christmas fruitcake is not universally beloved, in the U.S. or anywhere — Johnny Carson once referred to it as the hardest substance known to man — but Telane’s sentiment is right on. Merry Christmas to all!
