Christmas Greeting

There is just less than a week left before the Christmas celebrations commence!  The excitement  is growing and little ones anticipate arrival of Santa Claus while others celebrate the birth of the child Jesus.  The trees are decorated and the mangers are displayed, stockings are hung, baking cookies fill the air with delicious  scents.  Our festivities begin with the fish feast on Christmas Eve, something that I anticipate excitedly each year.  What fun we all have on that day, when the children were younger they would put on a play, open gifts from aunts and uncles and Grandma. Sometimes Santa would even pay a short little visit explaining how tired he was and that he would not be able to stay as he had to head out for his nighttime trek around the globe to visit all the other children in the world.  Now the children are adults with children of their own and the family tradition continues.  One of those adults children performed for everyone last year and we are trying to convince him to a repeat performance.  We are keeping our fingers crossed that it will happen.

Anyhow in the hopes that you all have family and friends close this holiday season and remember those who are no longer with us fondly we wish you the happiest of holidays and a wonderful new year.
