Actor Humphrey Bogart was born on this day. Who could forget his
memorable line in the movie "Casablanca" when he was 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; Le Santa Noel then 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, 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! And that's the On The House Wish for today.
