Twas the day before Christmas and in every one's house every family was busy quickly moving about. Mommies were cooking, daddies making repairs, little girls vacuumed while little boys swept stairs. They worked day after day and well into the night to make sure that their house was all cheery and bright. There were baubles and bangles and Christmas tree lights and a star on the top reached to dizzying heights. There was mistletoe, candy and presents for all and crackling fires warmed room's wall to wall. Finally, when it was all said and done, it was time to relax and get ready for fun. Uncle Charlie would soon be ringing the bell and Aunt Jane would be there with stories to tell. With thanks to our friends for all of their tips that all through the year helped us clean up and fix, every ?On The House? reader settles down with delight, for the best Christmas ever on this most special night. Happy holidays everybody. Happy Hanukah too. And that's the On The House tip for today.
