Sleep, sleep, sleep, ‘tis the eve of our Savior’s birth.
  The night is peaceful all around you,
  Close your eyes, let sleep surround you.
  – “O Come, All Ye Faithful”

Wishing you and yours peace, hope and happiness throughout the holiday season — the best time of the year!

Cheers, Heather

Some interesting, fun, delicious reads:

  • December is National Pear Month. One medium fruit is only about 100 calories, and is an excellent source of filling dietary fiber — about 1/4 of your daily recommendation. Pears also contain antioxidant flavonols and flavanols, eye-protective carotenoids, and the potentially anti-cancer phytonutrients called cinnamic acids. Include pears on your menu this week with my Red Revitalizer Smoothie as a festively hued breakfast or snack!
  • The sugar cookie matrix.
  • Icing yours? Skip artificial dyes in favor of homemade food coloring this year.
  • This story is two years old, but DYK these facts about everyone’s favorite reindeer?
  • Jólakötturinn: The creepy Icelandic “Yule Cat.”
  • Some people say the animals talk at midnight on Christmas Eve.
  • This week’s pinned words of wisdom.
