The holidays are a time of tradition - both cherishing the old and creating the new. 

Timeless Traditions

One of Barry Berg’s big holiday traditions is his annual “Soup Night” the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. 

“This year was our 23rd annual such evening,” says Barry. “We typically host 45-55 people that evening. Each year, we provide the soups (3 ‘made from scratch’) and wines, while inviting guests to bring hors d’oeuvres, salads and desserts. It’s always a terrific start to the holiday season.”

As the season progresses, Barry looks forward to typically celebrating Christmas with Walter’s family in New York City. There, they always include at least one “family-friendly” Broadway musical as a family and often attend one or two  other shows as well. 

Barry notes, “Walter’s family loves to visit Rockefeller Center one evening to see the Christmas tree there and catch the light shows at Saks, as well as the window displays along Fifth Avenue.”

New Beginnings 

For Krista Eull, new holiday traditions are underway. This year marked the second time that Krista attended a jazz concert on Christmas Eve at the Dakota with friends. 

She explains, “ It’s not Christmas-themed music, but it’s an annual residency, and The Bad Plus are one of our favorite groups to listen to and watch. It gives us something to look forward to on an otherwise very low-key, non-eventful holiday.”

Whatever your tradition - new or long-held, we wish you a wonderful celebration!
