Dec 25th

Washington, DC - another gimmee, right?
Heard from Jim, Elaine, Milt, Joani, Michelle, Peyton, and Mike!

"Ho! Ho!! Ho!!!"

In early December my church holds its annual Holly Fair where crafters from the parish display their wares for us to purchase. My favorite has been Pat's amazing jams - the flavors are tempting (I bought six different ones)! 

There are raffles, cookies and baked goods, and a wide variety of items to suit whatever is your fancy.

Santa is extremely busy as he is part of the "Breakfast with Santa" and available for requests - I have seen several adults on his lap with long lists!

Where in the World?

Better get out the atlas as this year I will be featuring some of the more famous cities of the world! Here are some interesting facts about one of them. Just what city would I be visiting? 

One of the largest cities in the world

It is also one of the most populous cities of the world. It also has the distinction of having the maximum number of museums in the world.

Tourists often refer to it as the ‘city of palaces.’ This is because of the numerous State buildings that can be found in this capital city.

One of the most important areas is Plaza de la Constitucion. Counted among one of the largest squares in the world, this city landmark is surrounded by several historic buildings.

if you want to see its historical sights, then you can visit the Xochimilco. The Xochimilco is a huge network of waterways and flower gardens.

Final hint: Basilica de Guadalupe is considered to be one of the holiest places by the Catholics all around the world. The Basilica de Guadalupe sees pilgrims in large numbers around December 12 every year. This shrine is also said to guard the shroud of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

A Word to the Wise. . .
