Oh no...only 18 days left till Christmas

Black Friday has come and gone, shopping centers are full of craziness this time of year. Everyone looking for bargains for their loved ones for Christmas morning. A time of year meant for family get togethers that has become mostly commercialized. Deck the halls with boughs of holly fa la la la la la la la la...and all that. The best part of this time of year is watching the Christmas specials on the tube. Remember the old classics? Rudolph the red nosed rain deer, A Charlie Brown Christmas, Twas the night before Christmas, A Christmas Story, How the Grinch stole Christmas, heck I even remember Perry Como and Bing Crosby Christmas Specials at this time of year. There I go giving away my age again lol. The important thing to remember is that Christmas is all about family. A time of year when you remember all your family members even if they are no longer here. Those memories last a lifetime. Christmas Cards are not as prevalent as in past years, thanks to high rising postage costs, many have gone to utilizing online methods of sending out holiday greetings. Many residents have outside decorations of beautiful lights on display to celebrate the season. Who can forget the effort that goes into doing all of that to make it look great? Putting up the tree and doing the decorations in doors is a great way to celebrate the season. The tree gets its ornaments, garland, lights and is unique every year. As we get closer to Christmas, remember to think about your family. After all that is what this holiday is supposed to be about, family.
