My husband and I both have our holiday parties today.
Mine will be a bummer because two colleagues are being forced out of their jobs and everyone is really angry and upset for them, and their students. They’ve been with us for 1.5 years and are very well liked and their departure will weigh heavily on everyone’s hearts.
My husband’s holiday party will be even sadder, as the mayor of San Francisco just died, and everyone in his office is devastated.
Sometimes the holidays aren’t a happy time.
