You’d never think it looking outside or at the thermometer today, but it’s late December in the American Northeast. The temperature was 60ºF (about 15ºC) and all the snow had melted. The air was wet and sticky. This is not typical weather for us at this time of year in this part of the country. Not at all.
It’s wrong. All wrong. Wrong, wrong, wrong!
So I decorated the Christmas tree to remind myself that it really is officially winter.
