When the snow storms start in the south and work their way north, the people who live and work in the northeastern states know that they will have a lot of snow. We had an inch accumulate although it snowed for three days. But it looks like New England will be getting about 2 feet of snow from the same storm as it gathers momentum and moisture.
This is a wonderful time of year. The shopping and thoughtful selection of special gifts for people, the seasonal foods like fruitcake and cookies, the beautiful decorations and magical lights, and the fellowship among people all make this month my favorite time of the year.
We have put up our Christmas tree and put lights along the branches of our Dogwood tree in the front yard. I wrapped our mailbox post with gold tinsel and hung a red berry wreath on the front door.
Now for the baking and gift wrapping! Enjoy your holidays!
