As I was driving my middle daughter to school, the other morning, stressing about Christmas being right around the corner, I had an idea...a truly wonderous idea! I had a dream where December truly represented the Christmas season. Tired of December bringing on heart palpitations, depression and a juggling contest between what to pay and not to pay. What bills fall behind so that you can have a nice Holiday for your family. It gets tirering to meet so many grumpy people, from traffic to being pushed in stores just to get to the advertised sale item.
What do I mean? Well sit back and just imagine for a second if this was to happen. Imagine the month of December arrives and it is not the most stressfull month of the year! Why? Because no one has to worry about bills. Rent/mortgage is not due in Dec. Utility Companys don't charge for utilities. The end result is no one has to worry about what bill to sacrifice in order to buy the gifts for your families. No one has to worry about how to

GIRL ON FIRE-ALICIA KEYSRead More »from SONG BLOG-POST #1
"Girl on Fire" was inspired by Keys' giving birth to her son Egypt and marriage to husband Swizz Beatz. Keys recorded a three-track suite for the song, consisting of the main version in addition to two remixes. The first remix titled "Inferno" adds two new verses from Trinidadian hip hop artist Nicki Minaj whilst the second mix titled "Bluelight" strips back the drums and piano leaving a sparse bass-led production and re-recorded "smokey" vocals.

Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton
Even with the official news that the royal couple is expecting, Prince William and his wife, the former Kate Middleton, have already bucked some traditions: They waited almost a decade after meeting to marry and didn't announce a pregnancy within the first year of their union.
So how will this modern couple handle the traditions of the monarchy when it comes to their baby?
Royal expert Hugo Vickers says by email to Yahoo!, "Each generation of the Royal Family do things their way." Vickers suggests the couple will "veer to the informal and hands on approach," meaning "as few staff as possible."
Still, Vickers says he finds the pair "quite a traditional couple," pointing to their formal wedding as a prime example of how the two conduct themselves.
This is a family that changes slowly over time, but as royal historian Carolyn Harris notes, each generation of royal children may institute "change and modernization of royal traditions." She points to Queen VictoriaRead More »from Bringing Up a Royal Baby: How Kate and Will's Child Will Be Different

It was 1970 and we were a one-station-wagon Michigan family. I was the oldest of five kids, a kindergartener consumed with the sheer magic of snow and Santa Claus and Christmas. Times were tight, the cupboard rarely full. My dad worked three jobs to keep food on the table, and as December drew near he talked often of the meaning of Christmas.
The real meaning.
During Thanksgiving weekend he had an idea. A new movie musical was playing at the local theater. It was Scrooge, starring Albert Finney. "Let's all go," he announced. The chill of November air painted a pale red on his cheeks and his smile stretched across his face. "I have a feeling it'll be a classic." My mom mentioned something about the cost, but my dad waved off any worry. "This is Scrooge. Some things are worth the money."
And so it was. I remember partway through the movie catching a glimpse of my dad, quiet tears falling down his face. The depth of emotionRead More »from The Best Holiday Movies, Memories, and the True Meaning of Christmas
