TIE Essay of the Month: ‘The Seventh Wish’, by Thais Vitorelli

New Year’s is my absolute favorite holiday. I love to dance around all the different superstitions between families and cultures. I guess most of it has to do with the energy that predominates the last day of the year. It is the only day in which everyone is wishing for the same things as you […]
