Happy Christmas To All ...

"Maybe Christmas, the Grinch thought, doesn't come from a store."

Happy Christmas Eve runners, joggers, bikers and friends.

As I sit here early on Christmas Eve morning I hear the clanging of the trash trucks and the constant drone of the morning news shows on TV. These are the sounds of the early risers in a world of late sleepers on the eve of the most anticipated day of the year.

The stockings are hung by the chimney with care -- check. With hopes that UPS and Amazon will deliver yet today with care. Otherwise, we're a little bit sunk on the present front. Say a little prayer for us, why don't you.

"Expectancy is the atmosphere for miracles."

Edwin Louis Cole

I'm expecting it might take a miracle to get me out on the streets today. Baby it's cold outside, and I'm a wimp in the cold. Looks like it might be another spin bike day. They always say cross-training is important.

"The main reason Santa is so jolly is because he knows where all the bad girls live."

George Carlin, yah, it's old-school but so is Christmas. Nothing like cranking up the old movies, putting on some holiday music and letting the season wash over you on cold winter days like today. And I'm still debating that outside run. Maybe we'll go to early Mass, and I'll be off the hook. Hmmm.
And if you're like the rest of us, you need a little holiday cheer and a reason not to work for a couple of minutes. Besides, laughter burns at least 20 calories, so think of this as a way to enjoy the holidays while making yourself more physically fit.

OK, back after a little giggle break. Still debating that cold run? Forget about it, it's Christmas. My gift to you.

That's right, you naughty little elves, it might just be your duty to save Santa the trip.

"I once wanted to become an atheist, but I gave up - they have no holidays."

Henny Youngman

So have yourself a merry little Christmas and all that. Be thankful for the things you have and not the ones you wish you did. Be sure to pay your Visa bill when it comes and smile because it has an extra zero this month.

Just one last thought as you tuck the little ones in tonight.
