I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on Earth, good will to men!

~~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (“Christmas Bells excerpt ” 1863)

For all of us at Bette Boomer on our third Christmas, this festive time is about celebrating traditions with families and friends and considering what might come for our future generations.

Despite all the commercial aspects linked to Christmas  and the holidays, it’s important to care and give with a Christmas heart.

Take a step back from life’s craziness. Find a spot that gives you joy. Go to or rent a movie. Take a walk on the beach. Hike a snowy trail through the woods. Or, simply stand quietly in the moment – any place of peace.

May you wake Christmas morning and be a child again. We wish you all a “wild and sweet” holiday season.

Bette and Team
