Happy Holidays!

Cookies and cakes and spices... When it starts to smell like Christmas, it’s hard not to get into the spirit. This month brings with it snow (for many), family, feasts, and fun. But remember to enjoy some hot cocoa (Don't forget the marshmallows!) during this winter month, and relax when you can.

What Reminds You of Christmas

A holly wreath hung on the door,
or presents strewn across the floor,
Tall Christmas tree with baubles bright,
Which fills our hearts with such delight.
Carols sung out in the snow,
A Snowman built with eyes aglow,
Crackers pulled, a song to sing,
Candles lit, and bells that ring.
Roasted turkey, which tastes divine,
Rich fruit cake, with an iced design,
No, the most important reminder of all,
Is the birth of a babe in an Ox's stall.

- Ernestine Northover
