We have cycled back again to the final day of the work week and stand on the threshhold of the first weekend of 2013.

What else do we stand on the threshhold of?
Well:
Days to the Season: 313
Days to Christmas Day: 355
These numbers seem insurmountable right now.

When we got home, I got out of the truck and stopped and looked around the neighborhood and my home was the only house (for as far as I could see), that still had their Christmas lights on. I shook my head and went into the house with a sad feeling and a thought to myself, that I was a shame that so many people cannot wait untill they can take their lights down.

I sometimes feel that the true meaning of Christmas has long been forgotten, repalced with just the necessity of buying and receiving gifts, and in some cases, thinking of only themselves.... I do realize that time is marching on into the month of January, and it does cost additional money to leave the lights on longer (I truely understand and expect a utility bill of 600.00 in the mail). But I myself, want to hold onto Christmas for as long as I can and if I can express my love for something in such a manner, then I ask this; "Is it worth it?" To me, it is.....
Hold onto Christmas as long as you want, I would leave to keep my lights up as long as possible, but like I have said Jan. 8 is my shut off date outside. They will stay on inside until everything comes down.

Here is a song for you for the words in bold.
Rotary Connection-"Shopping Bag Menagerie"

This year we were in San Antonio on Black Friday but we did go to one of the shows on a Saturday in December. We go to this mall throughout the year as well. I thought this picture was impressive so I thought I would share. If you notice the 4 floors crowded with people? Yes, it's this crowded every year for the show. We usually get there a couple of hours early to grab a spot or you miss out!

That is beautiful, all we get to look at, at the mall is people eating.
