Home for the Holidays

I am not sure when it started. More than a while a while ago.

But at some point in the thirty-odd years most of us have lived in this building we started gathering in the lobby once a year to celebrate the holidays, eat each other's favorite food, drink hearty, gossip about the late and former owner Mrs. Schneller whose family built the building, wonder when the children became tall enough to have opinions or pay taxes,...

...and have conversations longer than an elevator ride or a rush past one another late to work or dinner.
