Until Next Year...



Another happy, busy Christmas season is winding to a close, and it's time to pack the decorations away until next year. Out come the cardboard boxes stuffed with tissue paper that were haphazardly pushed into the closet last month, once they were emptied of ornaments. The mischievous elf pictured below, clutching his little dog, always brings a smile and has been putting in an appearance every Christmas for the past 50 years. Things get packed away a little wistfully, but once the tabletops are cleared and a semblance of order returns, we look forward to the new year with happiness and gratitude for the one gone by.
