Fun Fact for the week: The 12 days of Christmas are the festivities that begin on Christmas Day. This period of time is also known as Christmastide. So if you haven’t gone out to purchase your partridge for your pear tree, you still have time. If you can’t find a partridge, just put a picture of David Cassidy in the tree.

Pet Peeve for the week: Actually wrapping all the gifts. Next year I’ll start in July.

I guess we just missed one of the biggest storms of the year. My cousin in Warminster said they have 23 inches of snow on the ground. My thanks to Pete Schweaty and his treats from “Season’s Greetings”.

There are many Christmas services this week throughout the community. Take advantage of them and take time to think about this very special time of year.
