Actor Humphrey Bogart was born on this day. Who could forget his memorable line in ?Casablanca?? While sitting in Rick's American Caf?, he said, ?Sam, it's Christmas all over the world." And, indeed, it is. On this day in England small coins are baked into pudding, and those who find them are said to receive good fortune and happiness all year long. In France, children polish their shoes and leave them by the fireplace, and ?le Santa Noel? fills them with toys and gifts. In Iceland, huge bonfires burn all day and into the night. And, in Ireland, candles are put in windows to welcome those seeking shelter and warmth. Now, here today, our thoughts turn to you -- and things we've shared: Those 'things to do,? and every day of this wonderful year -- how much we've enjoyed having you here. Thanks for the love. We send the same in return -- it's something we'll work hard to continue to earn.
Happy holidays,? everybody!
