Happy Hollow-days

Most of my commentary here is generally divided into two categories: sassy commentary and technology/marketing posts. This post, however, fits neither, so save yourself now if you came here to find those! As I drove home from our weekly family gathering the other night, I gazed off into the ornamental decor and noticed this one beautiful grouping of three trees that were perfectly cone shaped. I am sure that you have seen these decorations. lights fill thin bands of plastic, so that when you erect the decoration it appears as a tree although it is nothing more than twenty feet of coiled plastic and lights.

Carol Ing Roundup

12 Candles for Carolers. 11 Carolers. 10 Houses visited. 9 Pictures posted on Flickr. 8 Families listened to our harmonies. 7 Songs in our repertoire. 6 Hours of holiday cheer. 5 People had no idea who or what Carol Ing was all about. 4 Glasses of Egg Nog. 3 Stories from people about caroling memories. 2 Families offered all of the carolers snacks. 1 Great party that enriched the holiday season. Although I have struggled with the Christmas Spirit this year, I was really touched by this event and plan to do it again next year.
