  • It’s beginning to smell a lot like the New Year

    By Dr. David B. Whitlock

    Mention the smells of Christmas and most people have little trouble ticking off their favorites: the perfume of evergreen, the citrusy smell of fruit in the Christmas stockings, cinnamon spice tea brewing, the aroma of gingerbread cookies and pumpkin bread baking.
    So popular are these smells that they’ve been packaged in Christmas aerosol sprays, candles, and refresher oils.
    Not so with the New Year.

  • It’s the most wonderful (and lonely) time of the year
