Happy Holidays 2020 – Brighter Days Ahead in 2021

2020 has been a hard year. So much suffering and loss of life that’s hard to comprehend. The shattered lives of so many. The loss of jobs, home and food insecurity of so many compounded by leadership at the top, Trump and his administration, that doesn’t care as long as the stock market is strong. I could go on and on.

This year I embarked on my yearly tradition of creating a Happy Holidays card with trepidation. But the human spirit is to be celebrated even in times of extreme adversity. Seeing so many heroes among us, front line workers, doctors nurses and essential workers doing the work that keeps society going proves this. So I made this card with abstracted people representing the human spirit thriving during the pandemic.

Wishing all, of all faiths and agnostics, Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas and Happy Kwanzaa. I hope you find some Joy this holiday season. A brighter future is ahead.

A note about the card artwork.
The holiday card combines influences of the three monotheistic faiths; Judaism, Christianity and Islam. For Christianity, the symbol of the Christmas Tree with the Star of Bethlehem on top. For Judaism, the Star of David (you have to look for it). For Islam, the interlaced pattern forming hexagons and hexagrams representing Islamic art.
