Christmas Eve Tomorrow

Like all the rest of us I have so many things to do, I may as well get this one over with. Merry Christmas everyone and I hope to make more contact after Christmas. I hope everyone enjoys their Christmas as they usually do.

"Once again we find ourselves enmeshed in the Holiday Season, that very special time of year when we join with our loved ones in sharing centuries-old traditions such as trying to find a parking space at the mall.

We traditionally do this in my family by driving around the parking lot until we see a shopper emerge from the mall, then we follow her, in very much the same spirit as the Three Wise Men, who 2,000 years ago followed a star, week after week, until it led them to a parking space." ~ Dave Barry

Most people are going to their own private parties which sounds pretty good to me. And there are not too many dances scheduled for this time of the year. Then I suppose too, that many will be preparing to welcome the new year in. All indications are that it will probably be a good year for all and the world did not end after all.

Isaac Watts 1719 "Joy to the World" the Lord has come, the words that fill the hearts of Christians and others around the world with joy during the Christmas holidays. This song explains all that is Christmas.
 
It tells of the birth of the baby Jesus and
the reason for the season. Not the commercialism that is so associated with the holiday today, the true reason that
Christ was born to
save us all from our sins.

 
There are plenty of parties for New Year's in Waikiki. I don't know too much about the West yet.

Pub's Side Note: Just got into Google + and it is a little complicated (too much available for me) but the simple stuff seems right up my social alley. It has just about everything as social media to supplement our blogs. Guy Kawasaki has just written a terrific book "What the Plus!" Paperback on sale at Amazon for only $8.
