Happy Holidays!

I just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas/Happy Holiday (whatever you celebrate!).  So to try to include everyone…

Merry Christmas!

Happy Hanukkah!

Happy St. Stephen’s Day!

Happy Boxing Day!

Happy National Pumpkin Pie Day!  (That’s legit, btw.)

Happy Battle of Trenton Day!  (True story: 240 years ago today, General George Washington and his troops crossed the Delaware River on Christmas Eve/Christmas morning and surprised the Hessian troops in Trenton, New Jersey, on Christmas morning. Inebriated and stunned, the Hessians quickly surrendered.  This battle became a turning point in the Revolutionary War because it was the first American victory in months.  You’re welcome, history friends.  No one in my family appreciates that I know this, so I’m passing it on to you.)
