Merry Christmas Eve.
I hope you all have the day off and you enjoy the beginning of the holidays with family and friends. However, I know many people are working and even more will be going to "the store" because this is one of the busiest shopping days throughout the year.
Most of you have probably already finished preparations for Christmas Day - Christmas dinner with family and friends is the main part of Christmas in our home. It has become a personal tradition that after everyone has eaten and relaxed after dinner that I go for a walk in the woods. I started doing it to work off the delicious dinner instead of napping in the afternoon or early evening. I have been in the woods on Christmas Days during snowstorms, snow flurries, rain, and sun - just about every type of weather. One year it was 10°C (50°F) which is very warm for late December, as I walked through the woods.
