December… buckle up ~
Posted On 11/26/2021 19:52:49 by momtocam

The last month of 2021 is upon us…31 days on the calendar..we will welcome old man Winter in a few weeks. A busy month it will be indeed. Are you ready?

Here are some fun facts about this hectic month we all love to either hate (or love). Snow, cold, no sunlight for too many hours, larger shopping crowds, traveling more miles here and yonder, eating more… you get the picture. According to Wikipedia, December starts on the same day of the week as September every year….and ends on the same day as April every year (who knew?) December is also the month with the shortest daylight hours of the year in the Northern Hemisphere and the longest daylight hours of the year in the Southern Hemisphere.

Can you say parades? We will begin seeing lots of them..and by the time this prints, you very well may have already been to one, or more. For the last few years, I’ve chosen to view the local parade here from the comfort of my recliner..thanks to the folks at the Montcross chamber and their webcam. It offers a perfect view of all the excitement and splendor of the Belmont parade.

And, don’t forget to celebrate. You need to take time to smile this holiday season. Maybe even breathe a little. It can be pretty stressful, what with all the parties, gatherings, shopping, cooking, recitals to attend, and meals to cook. Just because it’s the end of the year doesn’t mean you should become totally frazzled.

One element of this season I truly enjoy is writing a personal note in each and every Christmas card I send out. I can take the time to reflect on special moments and remind the receiver of how special they are, not only during December, but for every single day of the year. I tend to begin to wind down and catch my breath, as I prepare in reminiscing of past memories, and most of all, in looking forward to new memories to come.

Let’s embrace December for *all it brings*. So, in honor of the 12th month, I present you an awesome quote from the epic book, “Oh the Places You’ll Go” by our good friend, Dr. Seuss.  “How did it get so late so soon. It’s night before it’s afternoon. December is here before it’s June. My goodness how the time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon?”- Dr. Seuss.

Have a safe and wonderful December folks.
