Today’s grocery stores are so one-stop shopping. At Mollie Stones you can buy the meal, the wine, the flowers, the tablecloth and matching napkins, a Christmas CD, party gifts, dessert and get your knives sharpened at the same time.

There is no reason to fuss – Go Thoreau and simplify, simplify, simplify

Mable, Mable: Set the table the night before and be sure to have a simple centerpiece and candles. Fill a large glass bowl with brightly colored ornaments.

Silent night? If you want Joy to the World – get great music – default to the classics by getting the Christmas crooners: Frank Sinatra. Bing Crosby and Andrea Bocelli and, Santa baby, you’ll have a jingle- bell- rock and a merry little Christmas. (Top 100 Christmas Songs)
