Like every other LJ post from work on the last day before the Christmas holiday that I have made over the past few years, I will once again mention playing the "Nutcracker Suite." I think I'm approaching 20 years for this tradition. It's not much, but it definitely puts me in a holiday mood. I didn't see the ballet live this year, but I'm sure one of the cable channels will be showing it all day on Xmas. My other new tradition will take place tomorrow. I will be out there in Old Town Plaza performing as Santa Bear. The boss gave us the afternoon off, so I will be jetting out of here shortly. Let the holiday celebrations begin!
