Seems as if the holidays or just after are a time of last-moments with family and friends, holding on just a bit longer, then allowing yourself to let go.
Very sad to see that Alan Rickman has passed. He, of course, did so much more than Snape, but my kiddos and I had such in-depth conversations about the "goodness" or "badness" of Snape before the last Harry Potter book came out.
RIP Mr. Rickman.
