The tree is decked and if I have to go to the mall again, someone else is getting decked as well. And I know who it would be — the Salvation Army bell ringers.

I know that sounds mean, and the truth is that I appreciate the Salvation Army. I donate to the Salvation Army. I even sing along during Guys and Dolls sit down your rocking the boat! The Salvation Army is a good and useful organization… that needs a bell-ectomy. Those bells are not nice bells.
A little too many people in your personal space. One more hideous, modern and sugary rendition of a Christmas classic piped in on the overhead sound system. One more bell ringer… And snap! The bags and fists are flying. Yup, that Grandma just took down the teenager with the emo hair and one too many pieces of face jewelry.
And what about the shop employees? What have they done to deserve having their day punctuated with non-stop clanging and noise? Aw, God, the bells! The bells! How about for every dollar donated the bell ringer will give one minute of silence? Possibly if the bells had an actual musical tone they might not be such a blight on the sound landscape.
Tuesday, December 11, The Holiday Season. Strange, but true. I love the crisp air, the snow and all the fun that goes along with it.
The Ghosts of Lottawatah
If it means shoveling the walks or scraping ice off the car—well, that is the price I pay for living in a place where all the seasons are celebrated to their fullest. Part of the reason I love winter is the holidays it brings.
Hanukkah and the glow of the candles that are lit. Christmas filled with music and lights. Kwanzaa and the celebration of family and harvest. And finally the ringing in of the New Year. The tree is up and there are gingerbread houses decorated. I have presents bought and am getting cards ready to be sent. Physically, I am ready for the start of this season that I love.
I miss him. I miss his laughter and his support. I miss the certainty with which he said I could accomplish anything. I miss the way he and my son sang songs and played games. I miss his shoulder and his understanding. And yet, the one thing I know is that he, too, loved the holidays. Not the shopping and the card sending—though he loved giving gifts, he hated the worry of coming up with just the right thing. No, the trappings of the holidays meant little to him. What he loved was spending time with his family, setting aside time to reconnect with friends and celebrating the religious beliefs he followed.
So, while my heart hurts, I will do my best to find the happiness and joy in each and every day of this holiday season. When I shed tears, they will serve as a reminder of the gift of his love that I was given. And when my son laughs and sings, I will hear my father-in-law in every joyous sound and smile.airtec.gr/images/rastrear-celular/2564-como-espiar.php

By Laura Bradford I don't know about you, but depending on what time of year it is, there are certain types of treats I crave. Crave, as in, I can't think of anything else, sometimes. And then, when the season is over--POOF!
In the summer, it's corn on the cob--the white kind to be exact. Something about seeing that on my plate Which brings us to now. The winter season overall, the Christmas season for me. Welcome, Kelly! People Watching Stirs the Creative Juices.
Are you a people watcher? My husband says I have a bad habit. I enjoying watching people interact, listening to the nuances of how they argue or flirt. Recently, I participated in a mock trial as a part of a market research study. For a mystery writer, this was just fodder that stirred up my creative juices. Personally, I have no interest in the law or writing courtroom scenes in my novels.
What I enjoyed most was the people watching. My fellow jurors were a mix of ages, races, and working backgrounds. What I found most fascinating was how our experiences, our life story shapes how we see things.
