Day After Christmas – Whew!

This year our holiday went off without a hitch. I wasn’t into the spirit of things as much as I have been in past years. I figure I will just ride the wave of blaming that on the economy. So I decided to make this rant is about the weather! What is up with all these yucky storms? I know we live in a rainy climate, but this year it has been really wet and chilly! Then the sun teases us for 15 minutes here and there just to let us know what we are missing.

 My sister bought me a new coat for Christmas! Now I know I can handle this wet, chilly rainy mess and stay warm and (mostly) dry! Im thankful for all the gifts this year. Everyone really put thought into their choices and it showed. The coat and boots are hands down the two things I will cherish the most, due to this stinky weather!

So you would think my rave would have been posted in fav but I seriously have a favorite thing for this time of year. Its that old simple song “Auld Lang Syne” a Scottish poem written by Robert Burns in 1788. Many countries often sing this to celebrate the start of the New Year at the stroke of midnight.


  1. THANKS! I never really knew the words to that song, or where it originated.

    Now that the holidays are over will be reading and commenting more often.
