Good morning, dear lotters. Holidays are around the corner.

I´m not yet about to start singing Joy to the world. I do it on December 1st. And YES, I live alone and I only sing in the shower. Meanwhile I learned that tomorrow is the international "ending-violence-against-women-day". It would be wonderful if that happened. But I also feel that that is as difficult as asking for wars to end In our country, December 8th is also a holiday. The holiday is called Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary and starts a month before. It is mostly a Catholic holiday but my country used to be very catholic decades ago. And then it is Chrismas. I am not a believer, but I believe in many of the values that Christ was for. So, for me, it is a holiday of love. And I plan. And I make goodies to give away. They are presents of love.

I agree. For the last 20 years or so I have gone to Claudia´s house. I´m the lady who picks up the wrapping papers from the floor. MY last Christmas was the last Christmas I had at my house. I call it "Tomás Christmas". We all knew that my grandson was dying and we all did our best to make him happy.
