I hope you had a happy Christmas. We did. It snowed the night before, so we had a white Christmas for a change. The children do not remember another white Christmas in their lifetime. Many of my friends in Tennessee said similar things.

This year, 2020, cannot finish fast enough. But the artificial line between two years does not change the status quo.

If you don’t celebrate Christmas, we still hope you will accept our wishes for joy, peace, harmony and goodwill.
