I am not a hip dad, but I aspire to be one. Around the holidays, this aspiration manifests itself in the desire to give my children memories for Christmas (the holiday we celebrate) as opposed to a bunch of gifts that amount to forgettable junk. My lovely Bride has been a driving force behind this, and between the two of us we’ve amassed a short list of a few holiday traditions and a few activities that help define the holidays for our family. Shared experiences like family outings can create lifelong memories. Here’s hoping you find a tip or two here that will lead to a holiday tradition or memory for you and yours this season. More

Listen to the podcast; it was a great discussion. More

Join them at the ICA on Monday night at for the Off the Page Conversation: 2024 Boston Olympics. It’s free and open to the public; just click the link to RSVP.
