We gathered in the foyer of our church yesterday morning waiting for the children to arrive from the elementary school. The presents were under the tree and the Christmas music was playing.  I didn’t know what to expect.  Will the kids be excited? Would they be surprised?  These were just a couple of thoughts running through my head.  When they arrived my questions were answered. Continue Reading…

All of us have fallen prey to them at some point in our lives.  We have hung onto these things…believing these things as if they were true.  That’s right!  I am talking about Christmas urban legends.  Stories that we have told, people whom we have been told didn’t exist, and romanticized stories that differ from the original.  These things…while they exist in our minds are not found elsewhere.  What follows are four Christmas urban legends that have stood the test of time.

I am on day #3 of “My 12 Days of Christmas.”  However, here on the Jeff Blog you will not find  me writing about my desire for 3 french hens.  Do those even exist?
