Be merry, friendly, and safe. Our country likes to bring the year to an end with holidays. Sometimes, we get carried away in that process. No matter how each of us celebrates the seasons, it is our own, individual choice. No one tells us what we have to do, but some do offer suggestions and opportunitiex. A sip or more of "Christmas cheer" can be part of our celebrating, and I enjoy that too. And, when I do enjoy it, I'm either already safe at home, or hand the car keys to Julie. Lets be good friends to loved ones, friends, and neighbors. Smile to folks, shake their hands, and greet them in a friendly manner. God bless us, one and all.
