Silvester2021_15December: The month of dreams and visions. Are you planning your New Year out? How about less pressure in 2022? Instead of speeding up, why not slow down. We have all had a tough 2021 so let's get rid of those endless to-do lists and resolutions. Take a theme and focus on that. One word, One thought. One Big Picture. Thought of one? Write it in the comments and post it on your mirror.

 

*"The Twelve Days of Christmas" is an English Christmas carolthat enumerates in the manner of a cumalative song a series of increasingly numerous gifts given on each of the twelve days of Christmas, starting with Christmas Day and running up to Epiphany on January 6th. The carol was first published in England in the late eighteenth century and has a large number of different melodies which have been associated with the song. The best known is derived from a 1909 arrangement of a traditional folk melody by English composer Frederic Austin.
