Felices Fiestas

Guest post by Bettina Perroni

This is how I felt at Christmas ;)

Christmas has passed and I enjoyed every second of its celebration, from preparing dinner to exchanging hugs. We sang a little out of tune, instead of one baby Jesus we had two, smiles showed up at early hours with rush, colors and all those details that ensured it would be a special celebration.

The party ended many hours later. –Many-. Why? Sharing just one night with loved ones is never enough. There are many reasons to be together not only blood ties, but also friendship, love ... this entire means "family”, a real family.

The floor is dirty, there are a couple of crystal glasses lying there after many toasts, and on the stairs a pair of shoes that I don’t know to whom they belong, furniture is upside down, and gift wrappings everywhere. A total Chaos!!!, a beautiful chaos that requires minimal effort when I think that the walls are impregnated with laughs and good vibes.

I feel a little bit exhausted but very happy, I enjoyed the picture captures that night and I feel privileged, I feel safe.

“I hope all you have happy holidays”

This feels good ... and I think that is just the beginning :)

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
