Tell us about it in an email. Better yet, show us by including a photo or short video of your family observing the tradition. We can’t wait to show-and-tell your holiday traditions on the GRAND website! photo: © Oliver “We don’t stop playing because we grow old. We grow old because we stop playing.” —George Bernard Shaw “Tradition implies process and change, the movement of the past into the future, the continual forging of links on an unending chain.” —Franchon Shur So much to be thankful for At this time of year and after the challenging year many of us have had, it can be easy to get caught up in our worries and woes and the hustle and bustle of the season. So, if you’re feeling a bit like the Grinch lately or need a gentle reminder of the blessings in life, take a few minutes to enjoy this lovely slide show accompanied by Josh Groban’s beautiful rendition of “Thankful.” 12 GRAND NOVEMBER DECEMBER 2012
