26 Days Left Until Christmas

At the North Pole:

Right now at the North Pole.  The elves are working overtime to make the toys for all the kids in the world.  But did you know there are some elves doing something else for the naughty kids.  The North Pole has a small mining operation for getting coal.  Some of the coal is used for heat and energy.  But the rest of the coal is used for the naughty kids.  So for the naughty kids getting coal.  You are getting true North Pole coal, sweet!

Christmas Song:

The classic music group Wham! released the single called Last Christmas in 1984.  The music video for the song showed the band and friends having a great time in the mountains.  I also liked the beat to this song and it can get addicting!

Adult Gift Idea:

Christmas Charity:

Today I want to talk about the USO.  This charity fulfills its mission of lifting the spirits of America’s troops and their families.  Their volunteers help with an extensive range of programs and events at more than 160 locations in 27 states and 14 countries.  And of course, the USO volunteers do everything possible to provide a home away from home for the troops and to keep them connected to the families they left behind.  Just like the USO slogan, until every one comes home.  The USO is a great charity that could use your donations.  For more information go to: http://www.uso.org/.
