Fun Fact for the week: The first Christmas card was created in 1843 on the instructions of an Englishman, Sir Henry Cole. The card was designed by J. C. Horsley and sold 1000 copies in London.
Pet Peeve for the week: This week I don’t actually have a “pet peeve”, but more of an apprehension. My husband has placed a mystery Christmas present under our tree. He says it something he picked out for the entire family. I’m suspicious because it’s a rather large package and he already has it wrapped; something he usually waits until the day before Christmas to do.
