Holiday Time

There are two more days left for last minute Christmas shopping and making plans. Take a deep breath should you encounter travel and other delays and obstacles along the way. This week I avoided the news as you already know what's going on and have some idea about how things like the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 will affect your future. If you would like to share in the spirit of Christmas with others, there are often things to do in your area to that end.

Everything changes (consciously evolves) as we move forward remembering our experiences in 2017 and creating a new blueprint for 2018. What would you have changed?
Finish this sentence with a personal refection. At the end of 2016 I never foresaw - - - - in 2017 . For me the key word would be "reunions".

What does Christmas mean to you? to the world? belief in archaic traditions and mythologies? slogans such as Reclaim Christmas for America?

The poem A Visit from St. Nicholas, also known as "The Night Before Christmas" from its first line, was first published anonymously in the Troy, New York Sentinel and was reprinted frequently thereafter with no name attached. Authorship was later attributed to Clement Clarke Moore. The poem was included in an anthology of his works, but his connection with the verses has been questioned by some. Henry Livingston, a New Yorker with Dutch roots, is the chief candidate for authorship if Moore did not write it.
