“Old Timer’s Ornament: Reflecting on Christmas Past and Present on Dec 24/2023”

“Mornin’, Folks! The day before Christmas, where every sunrise carries the excitement of the night ahead.”

It is a bit cloudy waking up in cottage country this morning. But in saying that it is quite warm with the temperature sitting at 0.4 C | 32.72 F, and it will warm up even more as the day progresses and into tomorrow. Which in turn will remove most of the snow we have had so far this winter.

Highway 522 is clear and wet this morning, so if anyone has any last minute shopping to do, they should be fine heading into town. Actually, Highway 522 is so quiet at Christmas that Santa’s reindeer are thinkin’ about takin’ early retirement to graze by the roadside.

Signing off with a dash of country advice: “Life, like a good fishin’ hole, is best when shared. Grab your hot chocolate, find good company, and let the stories flow like a lazy river.”

Before I go, I would also like to say a few words about the word Christmas. It seems some these days doesn’t like saying it anymore, as they say it reflects on religion and what a shame that is. To me, when I hear, Merry Christmas, it brings back memories of childhood, family get-togethers, and all-around happiness. And thinking back, for me or our family, religion never entered into the picture. So, no matter how you celebrate, the important thing is making folks feel warm and happy inside. Cheers to good times and big smiles! Merry Christmas, y’all!” GW
