  Friends and Family : Last but not least, it's the most wonderful time of year because we are reminded to be appreciative of the people around us. These people don't have to be our blood family, or even our childhood best friends. These are the people that make us feel heard and important, the people that support us and love us, in short - our tribe. Don't know about you, but we can't think of a better gift than being surrounded by you, our tribe, each and every day.
