Thanksgiving has come and with it a few added pounds around the waist have been gained. Now, the race is on for Christmas. If you drive around the neighborhood, Christmas lights and decorations are already out on homes. This is only the calm before the storm of events that will get you into the Christmas spirit. Here are a few!
