Where will you be and what will you do this Christmas Day?


I will be in Bad Kissingen, a town flowing with mineral springs and music. We have just rented an apartment in the town center. Our building is part of the original wall, centuries old, and we look out one window to the cathedral spire. If the cinema is open today, we may watch 'The Hobbit.' It will be in Deutsch and I won't understand a word, but know the story well and will have Kati by my side to translate. We will talk with our grown sons, one in Germany and the other in California. May your day be all that is truly you. Merry Christmas!

    Your Christmas day gives a good feeling. My folks had an annual tradition of attending midnight Mass at the Snowmass monastery. It is a warm memory.

    I get a picture in my mind of Manchester like a Norman Rockwell painting. Is it close?

    A wonderful white Christmas. I can feel the warmth of home in it.

    Being out of country, and not seeing the news, I am guessing the excitement has to do with the severe weather? Your Christmas tradition sounds wonderful.

    I felt that way at one time, and refused to have a Christmas tree. As far as the Hobbit, I enjoyed the walk with Kati, our first visit to the theatre, and the popcorn. The movie was a far cry from my memory of listening to the story. Makes a hub!
