  • First Christmas

    It is easy to forget that Christmas was not always what we have experienced all our lives.  The trees and toys, the TV specials and holiday movies, the shopping and Black Friday, it seems like they have been around forever.  The truth is that all of that is fairly new.

  • This winter, don’t dread the snow, enjoy it

    There are flurries of snow in the air as I write this, and I know that will draw mixed reactions from people.  Some of us love the snow, and some hate it.  It seems we all have an opinion one way or the other.
