So This is Christmas

For Christmas being the biggest holiday in the world, it's funny that nothing seems any different when we are smack dab in the middle of it. There's surely no sign of Santa's having been here, so he must know we are Jews. Still, one would think there would be hoof marks in the snow or sleigh tracks in the road nearby, since we are the only Jews around-- maybe even in the whole state--and there are plenty of little Christian kids who live around here.

It's snowing, so it's a white Christmas for us, although I am not sure what that signifies. What does seem important to me is that there is only one week left to 2012, so if we squeak through, the world did not end as advertised.

Later today we will see some family members, one of whom has a tree. Some gifts will be given and foods will be eaten. That's it, I guess. Happily, we have no surgeries scheduled for today. At the very least, I hope all my Christian friends can say the same!
