I know. It is just October, but the weather is cooler, the leaves are turning (down here there's just a little color), and turkeys are taking to the air somewhere out in the countryside, but…
Just think. Less than a week and two months away is that most happy (for most) time of the year.
In spite of "the best of times, the worst of times," the spirit of the Christmas season tends to rule whatever is happening.
Lets digress momentarily, and stay away from what some may feel is "the worst of times (especially with the countinuing recession)."
Not far away from where we live in Ocean Springs, MS, just across the state line in Alabama, southwest of Mobile, is the world-renown Bellingrath Gardens.
And during the holiday season, they really go all out with their Christmas decorations.
We have visited on a number of occasions and it appears we will start making it an annual tradition with friends and family.
Last year our visit turned out to be perfect although there was a forecast for rain.
The precipitation did fall momentarily. The temperatures were cool but not cold, the colors were splendid and the decorations were exhilarating.
It was really a wonderland . . . for children of all ages.
