Deck the Halls

Never worry about the size of your Christmas tree.
In the eyes of children, they are all 30 feet tall.
Larry Wilde, American humorist

'Tis the season to be jolly! Although one curmudgeon, who won't be identified, complains about yuletide music being played on the radio already, I'm ready to dive into the spirit of Christmas. The opening event is upon us and so we loaded up Mom's car with dozens of 17 different kinds of cookies and set out for the church: it's Mistletoe Bazaar time!

As the hall rang with activity from the various tables being set up for tomorrow, the custodian added his two cents about the questionable economics of the activity, dimming my smile somewhat. But never mind the dollars and cents, I choose to focus on the spirit generated by the event: people have come together, worked together for a cause, had fun, and felt good for making a contribution and, on top of all of that good, we will even make a few dollars for the church. So . . . Fa la la la la, la la la la!
