I’M DREAMING OF A WHITE CHRISTMAS (EVE DAY)

An unexpected squall left our street covered in white. And since the temperature is 27 °F and falling, we’ll have snow on the ground tomorrow morning.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

A bit of holiday cheer…

I stopped in at one of the local churches here to pay for luminaries that they’re putting out on my street tonight. As I was leaving I wished the secretary “Merry Christmas” and she wished me “Happy Holidays.” I appreciated the gesture. I’m (obviously) not a member of that church, and she had no idea what, if any, religion I follow. So “Happy Holidays” was, indeed, the appropriate choice. I just never expected to hear it from a church employee in this rather conservative town.
