Merry Christmas!


Every Who down in Who-ville, the tall and the small,
was singing! Without any presents at all! 
He HADN'T stopped Christmas from coming! IT CAME!
Somehow or another, it came just the same.

And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow,
stood puzzling and puzzling: "How could it be so?
It came without ribbons! It came without tags!
It came without packages, boxes or bags!"
And he puzzled for hours, till his puzzler was sore.

Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before.
"Maybe Christmas" he thought, "doesn't come from a store."
"Maybe Christmas...perhaps...means a little bit more."

And what happened then? Who-ville they say,
the Grinch's heart small heart grew three sizes that day. 
                                    ~How the Grinch Stole Christmas
I thought it was only appropriate to share my favorite Christmas story with you today. I remember being as young as four years old sitting in front of the television when the cartoon of How The Grinch Stole Christmas would come on and how I'd be instantly mesmerized.  It quickly became a tradition that the Christmas season didn't officially start for me until I'd watched the Grinch. 

So today, I ask of you: forget to refill a few wine glasses, let the dog clean up the crumbs on the floor and sit back and enjoy the time you can spend with friends and family. 
I hope you have an amazing Christmas day full of happiness, great food and funny stories. May you eat too many cookies, drink too many glasses of wine and enjoy yourself fully. 

Merry Christmas everyone!
