They’re Coming!

The holidays, that is. Halloween is next week, Thanksgiving is 4 weeks from yesterday and Christmas is 2 months from today (60 days!). We’ve already seen some Christmas commercials. Soon we’ll be hearing the wonderful Christmas music, and the holiday shows and specials will begin.

Thanksgiving is a time for family and friends to gather and enjoy traditional foods and activities. It isn’t a time to try new recipes, but to prepare tried and true favorites.

I hope to do some posts during the coming weeks that highlight traditions, song lyrics and stories, as well as recipes and decorating tips. Over the years I’ve collected files full of Christmas stuff with hopes of someday putting a book together. So far that day hasn’t come. Maybe soon…..

In the meantime, let’s be sure to remember the significance of these holidays and try to keep everything in perspective. Everything doesn’t have to be perfect – it’s the people in our lives that count! So relax and enjoy.
