December Arrives


Overnight, the last month of the year arrived.

In the heads of most children it is the best month of the year, but for many adults it falls well below that.

I look forward to the holiday parties and revelry. 

I remember that when I was a kid, December was divided into shopping days left until Christmas. I'm not sure that applies anymore. Shopping days until Christmas excluded Sundays, but now with the magic of computers and the stores being open seven days a week, the number of shopping days is really the same as the number of days remaining until Christmas. That number is 24 today.

Does anything other than Christmas happened during December?

USS Arizona Memorial
Pearl Harbor, Hawai'i
Certainly. Our family has birthdays to celebrate and then there is New Year's Eve (which is a December event). 

There is also Pearl Harbor Day on December 7th.

Don't forget the Solstice. Winter begins at 11:28 AM EST on December 21st. Brrrrr.

A busy month is fully underway!

Let's try to keep our heads about us!
