A mild winter of sorts. We had some heavy snow the end of last week, but a rain on Sunday night pretty much took care of getting rid of it. This was our 3rd Christmas in Chicago at Harry & Teresa's. I guess that makes it a tradition now until we do something else. We had our regular talent show, Anna & George brought a karaoke machine that we used after the traditional events. Pat treated us to a ginger ale taste test. He'd gone to great lengths to collect 18 different ginger ales - some imports, some very unique. In the end, our old favorite - Vernors - won out.
