Merry Christmas from Jennifer Ross -  Realtor
Christmas StockingI look forward to Christmas with family and friends!   My daughter is returning home from college in New York where she's experienced 43 inches of snow in the last two weeks! I get a kick out of her stories of sledding down hills on the lunch trays "borrowed" from the dining hall.

We spend Christmas Eve with friends at a formal dinner party.  The Moms cook, and concoct red Cosmopolitans, while the kids walk down to view the "Candy Cane Lane" lights overlooking the harbor.  When the kids return dinner is served with a card placed at each plate.  Last year the card read, "What was one of your funniest memories?"  This makes for lively conversation and it's amazing what you can discover about your children! We then have a CRAZY gift stealing exchange and end the night with dessert from "Michele Coulon's Dessertier".  The kids loved last year's cake that looked like a giant jellyfish with raspberries and gold leafing.

Christmas day will be a leisurely bike ride at the beach (and maybe a stop for eggnog along the way)!  Wishing you a Merry Christmas! .

Christmas Superstitions and Funnies


Christmas TreeTo have good health throughout the next year, eat an apple on Christmas Eve.


On Christmas Eve all animals can speak. However, it is bad luck to test this superstition.


A clear star-filled sky on Christmas Eve will bring good crops in the summer.


A blowing wind on Christmas Day brings good luck.


In Ireland it is believed the gates of Heaven open at midnight on Christmas Eve. Those who die then go straight to Heaven.


In Greece, some people burn their old shoes during the Christmas season to prevent misfortunes in the coming year.


In the Swedish countryside, from cock crow to daybreak on Christmas morning the trolls (wicked elves) roam about.


In Devonshire, England, a girl raps at the henhouse door on Christmas Eve. If a rooster crows, she will marry within the year.


A three year old once gave this reaction to her Christmas dinner: "I don't like the turkey, but I like the bread he ate."


Never worry about the size of your Christmas tree.  In the eyes of children, they are all 30 feet tall.
Larry Wilde

Christmas is a time when kids tell Santa what they want and adults pay for it. Deficits are when adults tell the government what they want and their kids pay for it.
Richard Lamm

Anyone who believes that men are the equal of women has never seen a man trying to wrap a Christmas present.
