Europe is experiencing such extreme weather and travel chaos this year. I hope that all the stranded passengers find a way to enjoy the holiday. I was fortunate that my travel plans were not disrupted by more than a 1/2 hour delay in reaching my final destination but in the past I have missed flight connections and Christmas parties due to winter conditions.
As a child growing up in Canada, the song "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas" didn't make a lot of sense to me since we could pretty much always count on having a white Christmas. I longed for a green Christmas. I moved to Europe to avoid the snow and extreme cold but annoyingly it seems to have followed me.
Christmas seemed to approach far more rapidly this year than usual and in spite of my early preparations, the execution of my plans to make (and beautifully decorate, I might add) lots of goodies did not happen.
Happy Holidays to everyone!
