    December Celebrations
     
    Every year at just this time,
    In cold and dark December,
    Families around the world
    All gather to remember,
    With presents and with parties,
    With feasting and with fun,
    Customs and traditions
    for people old and young.
    So every year, around the world
    In all land and nations,
    People of all ages love
    December Celebrations!

    "I have come to believe that a great teacher is a great artist and that they are as few as there are any other great artists. Teaching might even be the greatest of the arts since the medium is the human mind and spirit."                               

                                                              -John Steinbeck                                              

    "And in the end it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years."
