Christmas Eve

I have made my LAST trip out of the house today - a quick run to Borders to pick up that one additional gift. I think my daughter will run out to more eggs because she wants to make creme brulee.

Start here - too many to "list" but lots to sample. If you wonder where Santa is and how to spot a reindeer. Also, it's not too late to make a Christmas Fun Jar. or Build a Snowman or maybe a Christmas Crossword Puzzle! For the more serious minded - consider the true cost of the 12 days of Christmas (from PNC who has been tracking this for 22 years) ...

One Partridge in a Pear Tree: $144.99 ($15.00 Partridge, $129.99 Pear Tree)
Two Turtle Doves: $40.00 ($20.00 each)
Three French Hens: $45.00 ($15.00 each)
Four Calling Birds: $479.96 ($119.99 each)
Five Gold Rings: $325.00 ($65.00 each)
Six Geese-a-Laying: $300.00 ($50.00 each)
Seven Swans-a-Swimming: $4,200.00 ($600.00 each)
Eight Maids-a-Milking: $41.20 ($5.15 each)
Nine Ladies Dancing: $4,759.19 ($528.80 each)
Ten Lords-a-Leaping: $4,160.25 ($416.02 each)
Eleven Pipers Piping: $2,124.00 ($186.66 each)
Twelve Drummers Drumming: $2,224.30 ($193.09 each)
The grand total of the song for 2006 - $18,920.59 (if you shop online it'll cost $30, 330.49!)

Enough silliness, we are going to settle down and listen to some Christmas music.

A Very Happy and Merry Christmas to all!
