Christmas Week is Finally Here

Harry M. Covert

There is nothing better than Christmas week. This is especially true on The Morning of the 25th as all the beautifully wrapped presents and candy galore takeover. Even before the steaming coffee arrives in our Holiday Mugs, stockings over the fireplace are raided with candies and treats all sorts.
