Jen I am glad you will have a chance to spend Christmas with your family. This year we are doing what we did at Thanksgiving, having Christmas at two places, only because my son is all for the rules. He said you shouldn't have more than 8 people with you at Holiday times and we have a total 12. So my exDIL and her boy friend and her mother will be having dinner at her house, and my sons and their children and me will be at his house. I will be so glad when I can spend time with all my family at one time.
I got a few numbers tonight. I went outside and saw the Christmas Star. I tried to get a picture of it, but I couldn't.
One would think that those who live in tropical year round climate would not feel the same winter effects. Not true. I cooked stew and baked bread already this week. Now I'm thinking of making mulled wine to sip on in the evenings, even though it's in the low 70's once the sun dips into the deep sea.
Tonight we'll all have a chance to see the "Christmas" Star, aka the Star of Bethlehem. Astronomers are calling it the Great Conjunction of 2020 when Jupiter and Saturn form the rare "Christmas Star" on winter solstice. If it's cloudy , try to catch it tomorrow night or the next night. You don't need any equipment for this sighting. Just your curiosity. If you miss it, then you'll have to wait 60 years for the next conjunction. I won't be around for that one, so I will need to catch this one.
