In a typical year, I will attempt to hand our Christmas lights the weekend of Thanksgiving so they are ready to be energized on December 1st. This year the plan was altered by the snow and icy cold temperatures we received the week of Thanksgiving. As much as I enjoy the Christmas light show, there was no way I was going to hang from a ladder and string light while the temperature hovered around twenty-five degrees! Thus began the month of December!
My originally plan was to write about a Christmas long ago but the month was consumer by near endless activities which did not include blogging. For the present, the ghosts of Christmas past will just have to be still for another year. I will simply take this opportunity to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas.
