Good morning everyone!

A new day. A new incredible special post. Thank you, again, 'Star. Best of luck to Ballcoach and Xmas as they put the finishing touches on their posts and prepare them for their respective debuts.

Kim and I managed to make it to Cornwall and back yesterday. We made a few visits to her family while we there. It was nice to see them again. Last night was quite snowy! Wet snow began at about 4pm and persisted throughout the night. It managed to remain throughout the evening, but appears that it has since melted this morning. However, with this cold spell, there is a chance for snow until Tuesday, when more seasonal temperatures return.

As for today, not much is in the plans. We'll have our final big breakfast before the beginning of the Christmas Season and then watch the Packers game. Hopefully they can stay afloat with Seneca Wallace leading the charge rather than Aaron Rodgers.

Well, speaking of that breakfast. I should really get on it. We're missing orange juice, which is a key element for us. I will have to get on that before we start.

Have a great Sunday, everyone! Only two special posts remain. Only three days remain! The Christmas Season is so close!

Celebrate all year long
Sing a Christmas song at least once a day
Play games with others
Laugh together
Pray for each other
Cry when your heart aches
Bake often and share the recipes and pictures
Watch Christmas movies, even in the summer
Take lots of pictures of your furbabies to share
It is ok to say Merry Christmas, happy holidays or Xmas
Say thank you often
Say hello to newcomers
Believe in Santa…and
Never, ever, loose the wonder of everything Christmas


Christmas is coming again, as it does faithfully every year.
It will come no matter what is going on in the world and in our lives.

We together have faced a year of great joys, welcoming new lives into the world and great sorrows in saying goodbye to friends, family members and beloved pets.
Praying, laughing and crying together as we shared those moments in our lives that we just knew others here would understand.

From daily conversations, to those special times of community chats, Christmas in July and greetings on the podcasts. With the ornament exchange and the mailing of Christmas cards, we bring Christmas into each others homes from around the world. Our very own Kringle radio keeps us dancing to Christmas tunes all year long. Of course we cannot forget the main event party of the year, “The Worlds Largest Christmas party”!!! The only one you can attend without the worry of what to wear.

So celebrate the birth of Jesus and the miracle of His coming. Get together with family and friends. Believe in Santa Claus and his magic. Give to those who are not as blessed as you are. Brighten those dark nights with bright lights and beautiful decorations.
Be excited, the Christmas season is about to begin!


Great post, Star!!!!!!

Alot was packed into your post, 'Star.
Lots of truth.
And an appreciation not only for Christmas but for our little home-away-from-home site here.

Thanks for an excellent contribution!
