Go into town and you'll see all the lights. I sometimes think we start earlier to get everyone into that mood.
I've posted a photo I took a few days ago, my window boxes filled with pots of poinsiettas. I'll plant them after the holidays.
For me Christmas and holidays have become bittersweet. Years of traditions from a big Italian family, the baking, cooking and sharing of stories around my parents dining room table. Good memories tied in a bow and put away but never forgotten .
Another time I'll tell you about Christmas and 'pirates gold'......
yes, it went together. BJ
