It’s not the crisp change of weather.  It’s not the passing of Halloween or the start of November.  It’s not the fact that I need to swap closets so that I will have warmer clothes to wear now.

No, it’s the holiday red Starbucks cup that signifies to me – undeniably – that it is time to get into the holiday spirit in anticipation of warm fires, Christmas music, shopping and wrapping, baking and eating.  And drinking…the coffee, that is.

Happy Holidays!!
