We had a little bit of snow last night, about 1". It's supposed to snow all day tomorrow, too. Yay!

Wasn't it nice to wake up to a little bit of snow lying on the ground this morning! It was a nice change. I hope we get what their calling for tomorrow as well!

That's what I thought---until I got this message today (after I posted in the ChatBox):

I thought Rudolph Day was the 25th of each month.

What's the straight dope on Rudolph Day??

Well here is the Scoop from our Friends over at Magical Holiday Home and Rudolphday.com-

Rudolph Day
Rudolph Day is celebrated the 25th of each month ending the year with December 25th, Christmas Day. The purpose of Rudolph Day is to prepare some throughout the year so that Christmas is less hectic. For Rudolph Day you might do a bit of shopping, listen to carols, wrap gifts, or sip some hot chocolate. Whatever you do, try to do a little preparation for Christmas and have a little fun. Rudolph Day keeps the Christmas spirit alive all year long!
