It seems that December goes by in the blink of an eye. And a full social calendar, traffic, long lines at stores, and near-hysterical consumerism in the air can test our balance.

Consider this a friendly reminder from your friends at Tricycle that the holidays are an opportunity to promote compassion in a season of excess and tap into the generosity that is inherent in us all. Happy holidays!
