It was a record high yesterday so you have a point. I can appreciate the desire to have a cool day (actually we had a couple in the 50s-low 60s earlier this fall - how soon we forget). I would like a big chill myself after the long summer. Still, this is Chamber of Commerce weather anywhere on earth. The mornings are especially perfect.

Where I used to live as a kid, down the street we had a giant chestnut tree. Big shiny chestnuts surrounded by a thorny skin that you'd have to crack/pry off. Geez, the things you miss...

I had one right outside my window. We kids collected the chestnuts - so smooth and brown I remember them - but we never roasted them. I think they were the wrong type? I miss the maple trees more. We would put a nail in them and hang a bucket and collect the sap, then drop snowballs in to make sweet maple snowcones. Of course, I'm grown now and would probably just complain about having to rake up the leaves.

Good point! However, the "traditional" holiday season in the modern sense focusses very little on the birth of Jesus (sadly). The "Christmas spirit" is all about snow, sleigh bells, Santa Claus, decorations, and most of all: shopping 'til you drop.
()

With that in mind, I really find it difficult to get into the "holiday spirit" with record high temperatures in the upper 80s. Remember that normally, the Christmas season is one of our wettest times of the year. I sure would like to see some good rain and cooler temps by the time December arrives!

And what in the heck is Martha Stewart suppose to do in Phoenix this holiday season Bear?:smack

It's not fair that her show airs here, and her magazines, it's maddnesssss!!!!!

Isn't Santa his own entity now anyway? I don't think many mix the two anymore. There are so many "holidays" in there, ones who don't even believe in Jesus that way so, best keep them all separated. I think we just say "Holiday" now. And Jesus wasn't born on "holidays" he was born on one of the "holidays". Honka, Qunka, Chrstma, la da la da, oh and lets not forget Aneithesta and Agnostica. lol

Deck the dirt with weeds and stickers, fa la la la la, la la la la, Hang the hat on cactus pricklers fa la la lala, la la la la,

Don't forget that spray can of snow for the windows people, we can at least have that!

Happy Holidays from a true "Desert Rat" like most say, at least you're not shoveling snow, or sliding home on black ice!
