    Christmas is almost here. God, how I Love that holiday. Little Santana begging for cookies and milk. There is simply nothing I like more than feeding fat little Santa some cookies. His teeth never rot, his bottom never widens and it is just wonderful.

    So does anyone here love the Christmas holiday as much as I love the holiday?

    Do not forget, Santa demands good cookies and if you see him, you are in trouble. He knows when you have been good and he knows when you have been bad and he demands that you like him on Facebook.

    Did you know that if Santa pokes his head out and sees his shadow, we have six more weeks untill Hanukkah?

    I love caribou roasting on an open fire. You should serve caribou on Christmas Eve; I have recipes. Do not tell the kids, they might panic.

    I kid, but I love Christmas. Go to YouTube and search "Flori Street Band." It is a great song.

    I'll send you one. You might have to iron out the tire tracks though. ;)

    I thought it was "Chipmunks roasting on an open fire"?

    Yup, it is lovely. I find nothing to complain about except some of the vocals seem to be a tad flat. I would like a slightly stronger vocal with a little more brightness. I love the violinist, the singing over all is very good and the female singers are especially wonderful. You should view "The making of . . ." video and do a little research on those who helped as well as how and why the song came to be. Quite a group of wonderful singers and players.

    visit YouTube and search for Celtic Woman, Christmas. It will tighten your Joy Spring and release Christmas wonderfulness.

    As for a White Christmas, I think you should experience one. Nothing like snow falling softly on the ground. It is really a magical time of the year; I dearly love Christmas. Come to Utah and I guarantee Yule Tide overload. And you will not find one blessed funnel web in the stocking hung from the space heater with care.
