I'm waiting for my oldest daughter to bring over my two grand kids, my son to wake up, my second daughter to return from the gym (yes, she is addicted to exercise), and my third daughter and her fiance to arrive, all suppose to be at 9 am to exchange holiday gifts under the Pagan tree.  

Whether or not you participate in the today's secular or religious celebrations, I hope I hope your day is as enjoyable as I expect mine to be.

If I may suggest, take a moment and think about those with whom you disagree; Put the disagreements aside and in your heart wish them well.

If we do it often enough it could become a habit.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christams to all!

Snow and -7* last night... real Christmas weather!

Aside, something you may or may not know:

“Xmas” is not a non-religious version of “Christmas”. The “X” is actually indicating the Greek letter “Chi”, which is short for the Greek, meaning “Christ”. So “Xmas” and “Christmas” are equivalent in every way except their lettering.

+1, Very well said Deborah.

I'm "working" today but had a great day and evening yesterday at the Ranch. Wasn't horrible but snowed significantly going over Togwotee. Pretty good snowmobiling at the Ranch. A whole lot of Elk out my Window here on the Elk Refuge today.

Have a great day, week, and year to come friends!

I could just echo what Steve Said. Love our rainy North Cal but no white Christmas. Enjoy your day! I got my family and once they wake up the party starts.
