    Dear Residents and Families:

    The holiday season is upon us! As you look around the community you will notice that holiday decorations are sprouting up everywhere. And, before you know it, Spring Hills Middletown will look like a winter wonderland. Regardless of the holidays you choose to observe, December has something for everyone; from Hanukkah to Christmas to Kwanzaa.

    Again this year, I plan to enjoy the Christmas season even more than in years past by taking things a little slower and just enjoying the “Holiday Spirit”. Perhaps all the anxiety and seasonal blues are less about what’s going on around you and more about what’s going on inside you. I have decided that I am going to enjoy every bite of those inevitable holiday pounds and be grateful for the food provided to me. And, if I have to stand in line at the check out, so be it. I’ll use that time to send a text to a friend or loved one to whom I haven’t spoken in a while. If I can’t find a handy parking spot up close, I’ll park in the back and enjoy the walk. If that so-called perfect gift doesn’t come in the size or color I think it should, I’ll simply find something else that will do. The ringing at the entrance of the department stores isn’t going to annoy me. In fact, I’m going to make an extra effort to remember those for whom the bells toll and, to offer an extra donation to help them out this season. After all, Christmas is not about the shopping but, about remembering those we love and those among us who are less fortunate. So, my plans this holiday season is to take care of my family, my friends, and my fellow man – the true reason for the season.

    May your holiday season be one of joy and may all your holiday wishes come true!

  • Last Month’s HighlightsLast Month’s Highlights

    ‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all thro’ the house,

    Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;

    The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,

    In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;

    The children were nestled all snug in their beds,

    While visions of sugar plums danc’d in their heads,

    And Mama in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap,

    Had just settled our brains for a long winter’s nap-

    When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,

    I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.

    Away to the window I flew like a flash,

    Tore open the shutters, and threw up the sash.

    The moon on the breast of the new fallen snow,

    Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below;

    When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,

    But a minature sleigh, and eight tiny rein-deer,

    With a little old driver, so lively and quick,

    I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.

    More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,

    And he whistled, and shouted, and call’d them by name:

    “Now! Dasher, now! Dancer, now! Prancer, and Vixen,

    “On! Comet, on! Cupid, on! Dunder and Blixem;

    “To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!

    “Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!”

    As dry leaves before the wild hurricane fly,

    When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky;

    So up to the house-top the coursers they flew,

    With the sleigh full of Toys - and St. Nicholas too:

    And then in a twinkling, I heard on the roof

    The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.

    As I drew in my head, and was turning around,

    Down the chimney St. Nicholas came with a bound:

    He was dress’d all in fur, from his head to his foot,

    And his clothes were all tarnish’d with ashes and soot;

    He was dress’d all in fur, from his head to his foot,

    And his clothes were all tarnish’d with ashes and soot; A bundle of toys was flung on his back,

    And he look’d like a peddler just opening his pack:

    His eyes - how they twinkled! his dimples how merry,

    His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry;

    His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,

    And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow;

    The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,

    And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath.

    He had a broad face, and a little round belly

    That shook when he laugh’d, like a bowl full of jelly:

    He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,

    And I laugh’d when I saw him in spite of myself;

    A wink of his eye and a twist of his head

    Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread.

    He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,

    And fill’d all the stockings; then turn’d with a jerk,

    And laying his finger aside of his nose

    And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose.

    He sprung to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,

    And away they all flew, like the down of a thistle:

    But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight-

    Happy Christmas to all,and to all a good night

    ‘Twas The nighT before ChrisTmas
