It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year...

I LOVE Christmastime...I love everything about it. I love the lights, the snow and baking cookies (even if they do come from Toll House). I love decorating the house and sitting in the dark with only the glow of the Christmas tree and fireplace to light up the house. I like that people seem to be more charitable, forgiving and just plain nicer. I even like the cheesy imitation Santas in the malls and the craziness of trying to pick out just the right gift for the people we love. The thing I love most about the Holidays though is spending time with family and friends. Traditions that we've created over the years, no matter how big or small they may be, make Christmastime my favorite time of the year. As I sit here over a thousand miles away from those friends and family, I realize that Perry Como was right. There really is, No Place like Home for the Holidays. I'll admit, being away has made me more nostalgic than ever, but I truly cannot wait to get home to all the hustle and bustle that the Holidays bring. So my friends, not to worry...I'll Be Home for Christmas!
