Well, it’s that time of year again. Thanksgiving is over and that familiar music is being played at every department store. The holiday season is here, and the BBA is gearing up for a slew of holiday parties this December, including the Corporate Counsel Committee Holiday Networking Event, Environmental Law Section Holiday Party, Intellectual Property Law Section Holiday Reception, and New Lawyers Section Holiday Party. We know the season can be stressful and hectic, but BBA Week is trying to be positive, so we asked:

"What are you most looking forward to this holiday season? "

If you would like to respond to a future Voices of the Bar, make sure you send a headshot, and contact Eric Fullerton at efullerton@bostonbar.org.


Christine Hughes - Emerson College
"I have a wonderful new person in my life, and I am most looking forward to blending my Christmas traditions and rituals with his, creating new ones, and figuring out whose angel goes on top of the tree. Come to think of it, there’s no law against multiple angels atop a single tree…"

Virginia Johnson – Prince Lobel Tye
"The best part of the holiday season is spending time and celebrating with family and friends.  And I always look forward to my annual tradition of going to the Holiday Pops concert at the BSO.  I also get a lot of joy out of trying to find the perfect gifts for my loved ones (especially if I can find them online!).  I’ll happily indulge in some gingerbread eggnog, too.  Tis the season!"

Erica Ferdinandi – Environmental Lawyer
"Watching National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation with eggnog cordials."

Jeff Feuer - Goldstein and Feuer
"This holiday season I would like to see our city and our courts recognize the legitimacy of Occupy Boston and all of the social and economic injustices that it has highlighted.  A movement toward actually addressing the problems of joblessness, homelessness, and lack of health care faced by many citizens would be more in keeping with the spirit of the holidays than any celebratory party."
