Merry Christmas, One And All!
December 24, 2015
So this is Christmas…
Well, Christmas eve, at any rate, and it’s hopping along. With temps already around 70 degrees this morning (the sun’s not even up yet), it promises to be a balmy holiday here in NC. Balmy and wet, since this is reportedly the second wettest holiday season in this region since the mid 1800s. I believe it too, as the ground is absolutely saturated and it’s still drizzling out there. Southern snow, I guess… or that’s the old joke. Ho ho ho.
But grey skies and warm temps aren’t doing anything to dampen my spirits, as we’re preparing to go spend the evening with my family and friends with our traditional Christmas eve celebration. It sometimes takes me a while to get excited about the holiday, but I’m feeling it now and I hope you all are as well.
So, merry Christmas to all of you, and my best wishes for the holiday and the new year. As always, enjoy the time however you do, but if you get a second to pause, give some thought to the service men and women stationed far away from their own friends and family this season.
