A predominant color of the holidays, red is, indeed, a striking 'pop'. Whether as wrapping paper or ribbon, these reds "help to make the season bright." On this Christmas Eve day, the packages remain dressed in their pretty outfits - nicely coordinated and perfectly placed. In less than 24 hours, the look under the tree will be entirely different - bare of color as the paper moves into the recycling bin and the contents get worn, played, admired or used...or perhaps even readied for the 'Return'. Like the drastic change under the tree, this holiday doesn't tend to linger beyond the 25th, despite the long-term build up and anticipation...perhaps due to the forward look to the next series of New Year's Eve and Day! Christmas cheer to all! Naples, FL
