Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! Here's your season's greeting!

The day of Christmas Eve is a a busy one here. We have last minute presents to get or wrap, food for the evening meal to prepare, a house to clean, a dog to bathe. Anticipation runs high, and, I have to admit, a bit of anxiety adds an edge to the emotions. I tend to worry about weather: the forecast here is for freezing rain tonight. That would put a damper on the festivities which include evening Mass, a delicious dinner prepared by Gourdo, and the immediate family gift exchanges. The morning sky was red: Red sky at night, sailor's delight; red sky at morning, sailors take warning. Maybe the red sky was only Rudolph from the North Pole, about to start his journey. I hope so!

We have family gatherings for the remainder of the week, so it will be a while before I return here. Merry Christmas to all! May Santa be good to you. May your loved ones be near to you. May health and happiness be yours throughout the Christmas season and in the coming year.


  1. Merry Christmas to you too Julena! Hope the bad weather holds out for your family gathering. We are actually in Michigan right now, so like you, I hope the bad weather holds off till we return home to Columbus!

  2. Merry Christmas to you and your family Julena, hope the world gets better, Hope the Santa brings all the joy in the world along with lots of presents.

  3. Merry Christmas morning to you Jo! Love your old fashioned card!

  4. Merry Christmas to you and yours. The man of the house are alone today, so I am visiting new and old friends through the airways.
