Kudos to Darcy Vebber for her evocative account of childhood Christmases in the Arizona desert and her spiritual journey to Judaism as an adult ("A Midnight Clear," Dec. 23), particularly fitting this year, when Christmas Day and the first night of Chanukah happen to coincide. The "surrender of her past," as she terms it, is described with poetic grace and an open heart exquisitely attuned to the feelings that underlie most religious experience: "the longing for peace and the connection to something holy."
