in my heart, and try and keep it all year"

With the rapid approach of cold weather in
the Northern Hemisphere, December's Full
Moon has been called Cold Moon. Also known
as the Beaver Moon and sometimes Ice-forming
Moon because beavers are finishing up their
dams and ice is starting to form on the
water. December's Full Moon will occur on
the 26th at 10:06 AM.
Remember those less fortunate this year with
a simple act of kindness. Contribute to your
favorite charity. Volunteer your time and
help make someone's holiday special in some
small way if you can't afford to contribute
with money. Remember, if sending Christmas
packages through the mail, be sure to mail
them early and notify the recipients when
the packages should arrive.
Chanukah starts on Wednesday, December 8th
and continues until the 15th. Asarah B'Tevet
is celebrated on the 22nd. Celebrate
Christmas Day with family and friends on
Saturday, December 25th but try to keep that
giving spirit alive throughout the coming
year. Have a Merry Christmas and above all,
a safe and Happy New Year!
Outdoors, spray evergreens, Christmas trees,
and treasured plants with anti-transpirant
spray. Save wood ashes to add to soil in
spring. Use herbicide for winter weed
control when lawns are dormant.

for Today's Living: "To give of yourself is
perhaps the most precious gift of all".
