This week, some rushed to do last-minute shopping, and others started baked-goods gorging. Some slowed down to light candles, and others plugged in their lights. Tis the season for sixes at SMITH, a time of preparation, celebration and reflection six words at a time. Below are the best memoirs of the week. Click on each author to read more stories.
