The arrival of cold, wintry weather signals the beginning of The Most Wonderful Time of the Year—Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the new year! What always amazes me is the speed with which everything happens. November arrives and suddenly Thanksgiving is upon us, immediately followed by Christmas, with the time between unfolding so quickly, it makes my head spin. Get ready for an amazing blur of wonderful activity!
