For some of us, holiday rituals are our happiest memories. For others, they are the flint that sparks our greatest fears.
Perhaps memories of unhappy holidays past haunt us. Or maybe we stress out at the pressure to project "happiness" during this time of year.
If something truly important is bothering us, faking some form of cheeriness isn't going to keep us from gnashing our teeth when another ornament falls and shatters,… Continue

Many people especially Harry Potter and Twilight fans read the books prior to watching the movies.
1. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince / J. K. Rowling

Writing is in the blood, as well as the heart and the mind. J.K. Rowling

It's time to celebrate 10 years of Harry Potter. And if, like me, you're the parent of a tween, then your kid was too young to read the classic Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone when if first came out.

Author Kelly Corrigan wrote this moving essay about women's remarkable capacity to support each other, to laugh together, and to endure. This actually brought me to tears and makes me feel so proud of my gender. I also feel sorry for the men in our lives because they miss out on so much by not having this kind of support system. If you haven't seen this before please take the time to watch it now. Women are truly special and I raised 3 great ones, this is for them. I only wish I had written it.… Continue
