Friends, the most wonderful time of the year is upon us – Christmas. Now, I’m well aware that I’ve awarded that title to Thanksgiving and Halloween in past articles, but past Melody was wrong.

Lights, hot chocolate, an overabundance of food, gifts galore, general merriment. What’s not to love? If you’re lucky enough (or unlucky, depending on your outlook), you may even experience a snowy white Christmas. Or, if you’re in Los Angeles like me,...
