An Honored Guest is Coming Soon!

11-19-2017David Lins

The Christmas shopping season is upon us with less than forty days until Christmas. Many people are putting up their lights. Even more have begun to browse Amazon for the perfect gift. Others have picked the perfect day to decorate a tree. A few are strategically placing mistletoe. Still, others might have entered into negotiations about how much time will be spent with each extended family.

Whatever your situation might be, there is no denying that Christmas is coming once again and certain things must be done to get ready.
