Merry Christmas from How To Be Swell

Merry Christmas all you swell readers. My wish for you is to be surrounded by loved ones and enjoying your favorite holiday festivities. I love Christmas, and being a hopeless romantic I am always nostalgic for my favorite sights and sounds of the season. One of my favorite images this time of year is the big city shopping districts all decked out for Christmas, like those immortalized in movies like Miracle on 34th street, Christmas Story, and more recently, Elf.  You can imagine holiday shoppers bustling about carrying packages with large bows for that special someone, and Santa on the street corner ringing bells for the Salvation Army so those less fortunate can enjoy the Holiday as well.

Have a Swell Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving all of my loyal readers. This year I have many things to be thankful for, and I hope all of you do to. I found a holiday treat for all of you this morning, part of the inspiration for this blog, a short from Nick at Night called “How to be Swell”. I hope you enjoy, and I wish you many blessings this holiday season and stay swell.
