    Tradition Indicates That I Write About This Tradition

    If you celebrate Christmas, right about now you might be preparing for a special dinner with family, finishing up some last-minute shopping, wrapping, or assembling, baking those cookies to leave along with milk for Santa, or having fun doing some other festive activity.

    Just A Traditional Christmas Around Here…

Same fun stuff, different fun year. Besides that? Well, you know: Merry Christmas to all of you who are celebrating!
