I am almost sure -- really sure -- that we are all getting into the "spirit" of the season.
My goodness, how could we help but do so after all of our merriment this past weekend? I saw several versions of that jolly old elf at the parade, and I must admit the old boy is getting younger and younger. Mrs. Claus, on the back of the town firetruck, looked absolutely beautiful in her freshly starched red dress. It is hard to fathom how those two can stay awake until all hours of the day and night and still look so refreshed. Must be something Mrs. Claus puts in her hot chocolate!
So, to all of you who still haven't made your Christmas lists, I have it on great authority that you'd better do it post haste.
