Not Exactly Hallmark Moments

It was only yesterday that we managed to decorate our Christmas tree. I'm sure we get the prize for being the last on the block. Really, I don't have an excuse. As I write this, there are only four days to spare before Christmas. I admit I'm a bit delayed this year. Okay, really delayed...like I've never been this … Continue reading Not Exactly Hallmark Moments

The Trimmings Tell the Real Story

Walking through my neighborhood, I pause to look at the various holiday decorations. And, guess what? I'm on to you, Santa. Santa has been very bad. If you look deep enough, and trust me, I always look deep, you will just need a few clues to put this puzzle together. You think Santa has been … Continue reading The Trimmings Tell the Real Story

Giving Thanks: To You

If you're reading this, I'm giving thanks to you. Yes, you! Thanksgiving may be about a big feast, but more important is the people who join you at the table, and the people who are in your day-to-day life. I'm going on a bit of a hiatus to spend some solid time with my family. … Continue reading Giving Thanks: To You

On the AFA Holiday Gift Party

Frank over at “A Frank Angle” is having a fabulous Holiday Gift Party! You may even have a gift waiting for you over there. He also has grab bags so everyone can join in the fun. Pop on over. Happy Holidays!

A Frank Angle

Welcome to my Christmas/Holiday Party for my friends, their guests, and whoever stops by the holiday gathering!

I’ve never done a post like this before, but it was fun to put together. Below the image are gifts for many of the faces here and bloggers I visit. These people come not only different parts of the world, but from different cultures and belief systems. They are Christians, Jews, Muslim, Atheists, Agnostics, and others, yet each of them is part of a global community of goodness – so peace and goodwill to all!

The elf below has the gifts. (Quite the helper wouldn’t you say?) There is an order in the listings, but you may have to look around.

If your name isn’t listed, I apologize – so open one of the Grab Bags at the end. Your choice!

Because others want to know what you got, please tell about your…

A Caroling We Will Go

Tis the season for caroling. Singing together in joy and attempted harmony.  I grew up with this idea, singing alongside my brothers and sisters. Two neighboring Catholic families joined together. Our family of six kids, plus theirs, ten kids strong. A gathering filled up our houses, especially if spouses and friends joined in, which happened … Continue reading A Caroling We Will Go

Pass the Gravy…Please

  Thanksgiving, a time to give thanks and, let's face it, a time to stuff our faces. The Thanksgiving meal is one you can screw up. It's no accident that there are a dozen side dishes that accompany the turkey. We can't just have turkey, mashed potatoes, and some green beans. No! We must have sweet … Continue reading Pass the Gravy…Please
