    Excuse me, but has anyone ever actually prayed for a White Christmas? And then had it happen? I did, this year...
    I start praying for a white Christmas in September every year. I like to give Him enough time to arrange it. There's only been snow on the ground at Christmas about 2 times. The people praying for the warmth apparently have more pull than me!
    The holly's up, the house is all bright, The tree is ready, the candles alight; Rejoice and be glad, all children tonight.

    I guess the other side of the coin had not occurred to me...
    "Maybe Christmas," he thought, "doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas perhaps, means a little bit more!"

    Excuse me, but I wanted to wish everyone a happy Candlemas Eve. Tomorrow (Candlemas) was when the last farewells were said to the Christmas season in olden times.

    Down with the rosemary and bayes,
    Down with the mistletoe;
    Instead of holly, now up-raise
    The greener box (for show).
    The holly hitherto did sway;
    Let box now domineer,
    Until the dancing Easter-Day
    Or Easter's Eve appear.
    ...Thus times do shift; each thing his turn does hold;
    New things succeed, as former things grow old.
    -Robert Herrick- verses from Ceremonies For Candlemas Eve


    And soon Christmas will be new again!

    I was not aware of that tradition, thanks for sharing it...

    Excuse me, but how many decorate a tree during the year for more than just Christmas?

    Excuse me, hope all is well with everyone. Since Valentines day will soon arrive Im just wondering if you decorate, or what you would put up? In the past I have notice some put on red lights on the porch or windows...I would put a heart wreath on my front door and maybe have grandkids make hearts to put up...

    I have not decorated for Valentine's Day thus far. I do for St. Patrick's Day (no, I'm not Irish, I just love the concept), the 4th of July, Halloween (outside), Thanksgiving and of course Christmas...

    My bad, forgot to leave one...

    Excuse me, but do any of you actually throw or go to a SuperBowl Party?

    We actually stay home for Superbowl and invite the kids over. We make a table filled with snacks and food.
