Flamingos live in my Christmas tree.

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you have time to relax, unplug, enjoy good company, and spend time around a beautiful Christmas tree. If you’re looking for some holiday entertainment, check out a few Christmas links.

The original 1966 How the Grinch Stole Christmas (watch the entire film for free).

The most recent dialect quiz from The New York Times. (Good family fun, avoiding politics and religion.)

 A photo of the first (1931) Rockefeller Center Christmas tree. (Have you been to Rockefeller Center?)

An O’Shea family Christmas tree (with my sister Sarah for scale, before we decorate).

Speaking of trees, did you catch the post on Christmas Tree sale typology?

A delicious cookie recipe: candy cane twists. (Always a favorite.)

Eggnog news story and recipe. (Yum!)

Past Preservation in Pink posts about Christmas.(Shopping to trees, carols, decorations, and more.)

Merry Christmas to you and yours. Enjoy the holiday.

Merry Christmas!

Christmas cookies are always delicious.

Why, yes, there is a flamingo in that batch of Christmas cookies. I am happy to be home with my family, ready to partake in our Christmas extravaganza: cookies, wrapping, Christmas carols playing, decorating the 12 foot tree, hanging stockings, drinking coffee, and all sorts of fun family traditions.

Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday!
