12 things to smile about today

(Photo / )

In honor of December, here are 12 things to smile about:

-- Serene snowscapes.

-- Bowl games.

-- 24-7 Christmas music on the radio.

-- The stock market continues to soar.

-- Home for the holidays.

-- Free food and treats seemingly everywhere you turn.

-- Presents under the tree.

-- Nonpareils with red and green sugar sprinkles.

-- America. (We may be divided, but it’s no worse than the late 1960s-early 1970s. We’ll get through and we’ll be fine. We always do.)

-- Fancy Christmas-light displays.

-- Three- and four-day holiday weekends.

-- Family. Always, family.


-- One of the most underrated and underappreciated phrases in the history of the English language is: “No, I’m good. Thanks.”

-- It’s not true that at some weddings in West Virginia, everyone sits on the same side of the church.

-- If I never hear the word “hashtag” in 2018, it will be a happy year.
