Yes It’s that time of year again, when we all dig deep and buy a lot of stuff just because! (Just Kidding! I love this time of year!) It’s fun and festive and full of sights and sounds and even smells that feel like the Holidays. We have even already made our Gingerbread House! I did a little shopping too, but I’m not even close to finished. We don’t have a tree yet but the Elf on the Shelf came a couple of nights ago. If you don’t have a kid around, and don’t know what an Elf on the Shelf is, it’s a little girl or boy Elf that is a scout for Santa who shows up after Thanksgiving. The Elf does mischievous things every night for the kids to find in the morning. AND reports to Santa whether they are Naughty or Nice, so they better be Good for Goodness sakes! Then at the end of the season it goes back to the North Pole for another year. It’s fun. It’s also an awesome time of year for taking tons of pictures, going out and shooting winter wonderlands and festive decorations. Family and friends, lights, busy streets, beautiful mountains and trees…just about anything this time of year makes for a great Holiday memory. I think I’ll go make a fire and get a glass of wine, and watch ” Holiday Affair” with Robert Mitchum or “The Bishops Wife” (the old one with Cary Grant and Loretta Young) or my favorite of all my old movies, even though it’s not really a Christmas movie but has Christmas eve in it, is “Meet John Doe” with Gary Cooper and Barbara Stanwyck. I just Love Frank Capra. I even bought a book by him once at a garage sale in L.A that was signed by him, It’s a great one called “The Name Above the Title” an autobiography he wrote about the movie industry and his life in the hey day of great old movie making.
Well, Happy Holidays, and for all the little Elves in your Life, don’t forget to fill the SOCKS hung by the fireplace with Care, with a Fun Sock Subscription to Sockcandy Kids Sock Club!…and a little Holiday Magic too!
