Merry Christmas. I will be baking another turkey early Christmas morning (tomorrow). I have 3 brand new meat thermometers that I tested in ice water & boiling water. This turkey will be super-fantastic.

This is one of my favorite Christmas songs. I don’t know the lyrics. It’s in French – about three angels(?). I posted 3 different modern versions below. They are so beautiful, it makes me want to cry. It’s shame we don’t hear this in American media. What else am I missing out?

Trois anges sont venus ce soir – Originally by Augusta (Mary Anne) Holmès. 1884.

Hey, guys… look what I found. It’s Christmas time. Another year is coming to an end. It’s been said many time, many ways…

Also, I saw a lot of toys for kids – one side for boys and the other side for girls.

I was little disappointed that it didn’t scream “CHRISTMAS”

Ribbons were at Costco on August 1st, 2018, just as I expected.  But, they didn’t have any obvious Christmas designs such as snow flakes or Santa.  Still, these ribbons are hinting us to get ready for Christmas.

Christmas Moment

I contacted my friend Friday (Dec 22nd) and convinced her to come out after work for a “Christmas experience”.  Both she and I get off work late. We are tired, but I told her that she will look back and cherish the moment – that we must force ourselves to create some kind of Christmas moment before it’s gone.

The entire night I played my favorite Christmas music in my car.  I picked her up at her work and went for a quick bite.  And we went to a coffee shop and enjoyed holiday flavored coffee.

Then we walked around the shopping center and took some pictures.  I struck a silly pose in front of a big Christmas tree.  Then we realized that my stomach was exposed in the picture.  We had a big laugh.  We kept looking at that picture and kept laughing.

We took a detour back to her work and looked at houses with Christmas decorations.  I took her back to work in three hours.

4 days later, I cherish that magic moment.  I hate getting old.  I hope we will all live young forever.  Enjoy your magic moments.  I will talk to you soon.
