How Does Santa Delivery Presents ?

http://www.kittyandsanta.com when, what to to my wondering eyes should appear,
but a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny rein-deer,
with a little old driver, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.

More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and call’d them by name:
“Now, Dasher! Now, Dancer! Now, Prancer, and Vixen!
“On, Comet! On, Cupid! On, Donder and Blitzen!

“To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
“Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!”
As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky;
So up to the house-top the coursers they flew,

Bass Pro Shop Gives Back to Community

Bass Pro Shop Gives Back to Community

http://www.kittyandsanta.com  The Florida Autism Center reached out to Bass Pro Shops Tallahassee, Fl. to bring Kitty and Santa Claus to share the Christmas Joy for their special needs students. Accompanyed by the Bass Pro Shop Elves it becomes a magical moment for the community.  Elf Jamie Lee “Most of the people I’m close to know that I’m an Elf for Bass Pro Shops, Santa’s Winter Wonderland. Today, I was lucky enough to join Santa and Kitty at the Florida Autism Center. It was such an amazing experience being able to bring joy to the ten or eleven children we visited. I also heard some of the children there have never seen or taken a photo with Santa. There was a familiar face at the center who visited us at the store. He said that he remembered me. Which melted my heart. (He said he liked me, haha.) But after leaving there, I never realized how lucky I actually am. Some of the children couldn’t speak or control their actions. Most the time I take all of those normal functions for granted. I take a lot of things for granted. But I’m definitely thankful for everything. Especially the people in my life. Being able to spend the holidays with my family, friends, boyfriend and his family is the best gift of all. I love them all dearly, too. I’m also grateful that I had the chance to spend the past two months with Santa and Kitty as well. They both have such warm and loving heart. Once Christmas is over, I’ll be sad when they return home. But earlier this morning was such a treat and I’m sooo very happy I had the opportunity to make those kids happy. Such a fantastic way to start off the day.” Kitty and Santa know inside every s(elf) is an Elf…your presence is our present.

Florida Autism Center commented on FaceBook , ” Santa just visited FAC Tally and it was the most beautiful and special thing. Ever. Some of our kids had never had the opportunity to see Santa before. Watch for photos, and maybe a video or two in the coming days. We can’t thank Bass Pro Shops – Tallahassee, FL enough for this amazing experience for our kids. We also can’t thank our own Miss Erin enough, who set this up for our kids.

Positive Choices at Christmas

 

Positive Choices at Christmas 

The holiday season is that special time of year when people all over the world come together and celebrate. Parties, gift giving, decorating,food, food and more food can be found everywhere. No matter where you look, you see beauty and wonder.

It is traditional for many people to celebrate with alcohol of some sort, whether it is spiked egg nog or Peppermint Schnapps, alcohol and even drugs are present along with the holiday cheer.

This article is going to offer some examples of positive choices for positive people.

* Say No

It is easier said than done, however, saying “No” is important. Positive people do not need to be drunk or high to enjoy the season and all of its blessings.

* Avoid bad situations

Do not get into a vehicle with an intoxicated driver at the wheel. This is a positive choice as well as common sense. Do not get yourself into a position where you will be forced to make poor decisions. Stay away from parties where you know people are doing things you do not want or need.

* Walk away

When or if, situations come up that are potentially volatile, simply turn around and walk away fro it. Do your best to not get tangled up in fights and arguments. The holiday season is supposed to be a time of peace and good will, therefore, walk away from unpleasant people and situations.

* Take the keys

It has been said over and over, do not let someone drive intoxicated. Even if you do not know the person, do not let their ignorant decision be final. Too many people are killed in accidents involving intoxicated people during the holidays and all year long. You may not be able to convince an intoxicated person to hand over their keys by yourself, so get someone to help you. You just might save their life and the lives of others by keeping them from driving intoxicated.

It is not easy to avoid peer pressure whether you are sixteen or sixty. It can be tough to stay positive and make positive decisions when friends and even family are doing things you know are potentially dangerous.

There is nothing wrong with having an alcoholic beverage if you are at home and do not plan on going out again. You can even have a drink at parties, just make sure you have a sober designated driver to take you home. The key to making positive choices is knowing what you want and what you need to do to be safe and happy.

Christmas Caroling

Start a new Family Tradition Christmas Caroling

Almost all the well-known carols were not sung in church until the second half of the 19th century.[citation needed] Hymns Ancient and Modern 1861–1874 included several carols. Isaac Watts, the “father of English hymnody”, composed “Joy to the World” which has become a popular Christmas carol even though it is widely believed that Watts did not write it to be sung only at Christmas.

Charles Wesley wrote texts for at least three Christmas carols, of which the best known was originally entitled “Hark! How All the Welkin Rings”, later edited to “Hark! the Herald Angels Sing“.[6] A tune from a cantata written by Felix Mendelssohn in 1840 was adapted by William H. Cummings to fit Wesley’s words. This combination first appeared in “Hymns Ancient and Modern” in 1861.[citation needed]

Silent Night” comes from Austria. The carol was first performed in the Nikolaus-Kirche (Church of St. Nicholas) in OberndorfAustria on December 24, 1818. Mohr had composed the words much earlier, in 1816, but on Christmas Eve brought them to Gruber and asked him to compose a melody and guitar accompaniment for the church service.[7] The first English translation was in 1871 where it was published in a Methodist hymnal.
