A bit of Christmas Cheer ...

Make Time for Small Reflections

I received this in email and decided to pass it along
with a reminder to have a safe celebration
on Christmas Eve ...



Who's jolly and cute,


Wearing a beard and
a red flannel suit,


And if he is chuckling
and laughing away,


While flying around
in a miniature sleigh,
With eight tiny reindeer
to pull him along,

Then let's face it...

Your eggnog's too strong!


Small Reflections ... Smile Back


If you missed it earlier today, the next post contains
a brief holiday video from the Story People
and a Santa Update from Norad
along with some musings.

Thought for Today
"In the old days, it was not called the Holiday Season; the Christians called it 'Christmas' and went to church; the Jews called it 'Hanukkah' and went to synagogue; the atheists went to parties and drank. People passing each other on the street would say 'Merry Christmas!' or 'Happy Hanukkah!' or (to the atheists) 'Look out for the wall!'"
Dave Barry, "Christmas Shopping: A Survivor's Guide"

Somewhere our e-mail lines cross. I received this one today, too. I always enjoy a re-run of something good.

Merry Christmas!!

Really funny! I needed a giggle, my oldest son and one of my daughters were going to surprise me by showing up for a Christmas visit with my youngest son and I only to have to cancel their trips due to the weather. The most important thing though is that they are safe and we can do it later. So, thanks for the smiles and good feelings you always share on your blog!

There's a credit card commercial airing this season. Santa personalizing his credit card with photos. The head elf warns him that they are already two continents behind and Santa should get to work. Santa yells, "Hold your eggnog!" In my family we say, "Hold your potatoes!" which has a slightly vulgar sound to it.

Anyway, rambling.

Best wishes and happy Christmas.
