Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all of you out there in cyber space.  I’m off to Poland to celebrate.  I hope you get to spend time with some people who are important to you.

This is the 2nd straight year away from home for Christmas after a streak of 23 with my family in Decatur.  Last year was a strange experience as the season is just not the same in Armenia.  No over the top commercialization, no Christmas lights, and no one who considers the 25th a special day.  It bothered me the first year and it bothers me some now too, although I’m more used to it and prepared for it now.  There’s only one thing to learn from this experience:  there’s no place like home for Christmas.

I’ll be doing some reflecting while traveling and thinking about the year that just flew by.  Expect another year-end wrap up, and I’ll expect to hear what you thought of your year.

Until we meet again, go enjoy the true meaning of Christmas:  tricking your kids with crappy early Christmas presents and filming it.  Thank you Mom and Dad for never doing that to us, but man it sure is funny to watch.

    Have a wonderful Christmas in Poland. I for one would really like to see some more of their tree ornaments. The one Aga’s Mom made for Gail is a work of art.

    Tell Aga Merry Christmas from the States and enjoy!!!!
