Halloween is over and we are headed into the BEST time of the year. Literally count down the days until Thanksgiving (21 days) so that I can watch my favorite movie of all time, Miracle on 34th Street. I watch the old and the new version every Thanksgiving after I stuff myself to the brim. [end-story]
