Christmas Day Wild Card — 12/25/07

If we’re going to have a White Christmas, it won’t be until later today. The weatherman calls for a high of 31 with a chance of snow later on. That’s OK by me. We’re running studless now that our second car was taken to Honda heaven last Wednesday evening. (Cue Bob singing Allelujah chorus in background.) Now, I definitely prefer my streets to be ice-free. It really has been no problem around town. The North Idaho Family Oliveria kicked off Christmas tonight by going to Christmas Eve services at our two churches and then gathering at my house for finger foods and good conversation. We’ll continue tomorrow with lunch at Brother Ray’s house. One of the best things about Christmas over the last few years has been the family gatherings as Brother Ray, Sister Charlotte and my Mom migrated from Montana to North Idaho. I don’t take the gatherings for granted, after spending decades in the Northwest with family scattered too far away, as the snow flies, to enjoy the family gatherings. I hope this day is a blessing for you and yours, too. Now, for your Christmas Wild Card …
