We are officially in the Season of Unmanaged Expectations.  Nostalgia, Hallmark Movies, and our own hopes and dreams create for us a vision of celebrations that involve, at least metaphorically, home and hearth.  Each year we hope and plan and wait, and each year, we are disappointed in some way.  The disappointments are so frequent, that it is rare and necessary to exclaim, “This is the best [fill in the blank] ever!”  Spending an ordinary day on a holiday is anathema to so many of us that we embellish the stories of what we did to celebrate.  On this Sunday, we will talk about what home is, and what it means to have a home, especially for the holidays.
