I'd just like to wish everybody a very Merry Christmas wherever you are in the world. And if you don't celebrate Christmas, then I wish you a joyful and peaceful holiday season and many good tidings.
Sadly it seems I'll be denied a white Christmas yet again this year. In fact, here in the Northeast it's going to be almost balmy, which is kind of barmy, but there's nothing we can do about the weather. If you're lucky enough to live somewhere where it snows all the time you'll be fortunate enough to enjoy the wonders of a white Christmas. But then again, if it's snowy all the time, I wouldn't imagine it would feel that special.
But whatever the weather, this time of year is very special, so Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and yours!
