The flowers were planted by Catharine with care, Her knowledge of color displaying much flair. The bulbs were nestled all snug in their beds, Just waiting for springtime to pop up their heads. Roses still in winter bloom, looking quite the best Had yet to settle down for their winter?

Traditions are the bookmarks in the stories of our lives. And the holidays abound with traditions, including some I could do without, like Brussels sprouts at Thanksgiving. Some of the holiday traditions are shared with many — decorating a Christmas tree, lighting a menorah — a tradition even more special for Lee Winocur Field now that her daughter, Avivah , is a rabbi. Other traditions are special to just the family or close friends. “My family grew up in the ’50s,” Marsha Bode said.

SHERWOOD KIRALY Tonight's the night again. I don't expect to see him, but I really don't mind. I was one of those kids who don't want to sit on Santa's lap. It was at Marshall Field's in Chicago, lots of mothers, kids, noise. I was about four, I guess; I was told to make my pitch while on his lap and then jump; get on and get off. This was my first experience of Christmas stress -- if the man had the powers they said he had, he was capable of anything.

You can stare at it all day long and still not see it: a darkened hovel wedged between two restaurants. While patrons at Madison Square & Garden Cafe dine on $17 seared ahi salad, two feet away over a bamboo-covered wall is a cramped, squalid homeless camp littered with cheap vodka bottles, mouthwash containers and urine-soaked clothes. A slab of concrete near the back of the small site suffices for a toilet. There is feces everywhere, including the walls. Officially, the site sits on the now-empty Cottage restaurant property, 308 N. Coast Hwy., which closed in late 2012 and is undergoing remodeling with new owners.

Bah! Humbug! For days, the words of irritation and disgust just kept echoing in my head at the oddest of times. Was I being haunted by old Ebenezer himself? What was this? Did I too believe that Christmas was a fraud? I went for a walk to ponder the questions and, hopefully, clear my head of the negative message. The fragrant smells of a Christmas tree lot wafted on the breeze as I passed, bringing long-ago memories to the fore. In my childhood home, preparations all started about two weeks before Christmas and built from there.

It's one thing condensing "Shirley Valentine" into a one-person dramatic exercise, but "It's a Wonderful Life"?

?Come help trim the tree,? read the note from Lynn Brown. ?Three-thirty on Friday. I?ve got champagne and snacks.? Who could resist? This would be the second annual ?girl?s decorating event,? a carry over from the year before. Last December, we had delighted in the transformation of a naked tree into a shining jewel, nestled on the front porch of the Browns? South Laguna home. It was an experiment that worked: a Christmas tree, fragrant in the cool air, and a delightful greeter for friends and family.
