Festivus for the rest of us and all those other holidays

I doesn't seem much like Christmas. Winter Solstice has come and gone and still we've had no frost. Our high temperature today is predicted to be 80 degrees F. but will probably go higher. The high for Christmas Day is projected to be 82. Santa is going to be very uncomfortable in that red wool suit with the fur trim. He might want to wear a Speedo instead.

Whether or not the weather seems appropriate, however, the winter holidays relentlessly continue their march through our calendar. Today, Festivus; tomorrrow, Christmas Eve; then Christmas, Boxing Day, Kwanzaa, New Year's Eve and Day...

Blogging will be sporadic for the next several days as I celebrate with my family. Whatever holidays you celebrate at this time of year, my wish for you is that they be filled with peace and joy. As for my house, just now it looks a little like this:

  3. Well, we are having the cold weather in So Cal. Even rain, which we sorely need. I was just looking at the winter night sky and the waxing moon. Happy Holidays and I am glad to have made your acquaintance this year in the blogoverse!

  5. Merry Christmas Dorothy. I hope you're having a lovely day. It doesn't seem much like Christmas here does it? Warm, humid... green.

    1. Y'all have had a spell of bad weather these last couple of days. Maybe relief is on the way with some cooler temperatures.
