“We’ve been doing the Easter Egg Hunt for six years. There’s a couple of houses down the block that participate too. It’s a really great way for the kids and families to get together. Starbucks on Kensington has been really great in supplying the coffee. I think we’re gonna get some hot dogs going for the kids here pretty soon”

“Take time to enjoy the company of people you love, check in on the people you haven’t heard from lately. Look fondly back on past celebrations and find ways to celebrate with people in the future. We really need some more kindness in the world–it doesn’t matter what religion you are or what your upbringing is, people just need to be kind to each other: That’s what Christmas is about.”
