AAA says New Year, New Low Gas Prices

 

Gas prices on New Year’s Day are likely to be the lowest since January 1st, 2009

AAATampa, FL – More than 90 million Americans, on the holiday road, are finding the lowest average gas prices for the year-end holidays since 2008-09. The national average price for a gallon of gasoline is $2.00 nationally, $2.01 in Florida, $1.91 in Georgia, and $1.76 in Tennessee.

“Gasoline could get even cheaper in the coming weeks, as some of the lowest prices of the year typically arrive in January,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Once the holiday season wraps up, fewer people take long distance road trips, leading to a downturn in demand at a time when supplies are high.”

The Bells of Christmas

 

Written by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Christmas PresentsI heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old, familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet
The words repeat
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

And thought how, as the day had come,
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along
The unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

Christmas is the Day Jesus was Born

 

Written by Dinah Maria Mulock

Jesus in the mangerGod rest ye, merry gentlemen; let nothing you dismay,
For Jesus Christ, our Saviour, was born on Christmas-day.

The dawn rose red o’er Bethlehem, the stars shone through the gray,
When Jesus Christ, our Saviour, was born on Christmas-day.

NASA reports Christmas Day Full Moon

 

Written by Nancy Neal Jones
NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationGreenbelt, MD – Not since 1977 has a full moon dawned in the skies on Christmas. But this year, a bright full moon will be an added gift for the holidays.

December’s full moon, the last of the year, is called the Full Cold Moon because it occurs during the beginning of winter. The moon’s peak this year will occur at 5:11am CST.

This rare event won’t happen again until 2034. That’s a long time to wait, so make sure to look up to the skies on Christmas Day.

Wait to Shop on Christmas Eve? What a Concept!

 

Christmas PresentsClarksville, TN – When I returned home late in the afternoon, I collapsed on the couch and announced that I was exhausted from shopping for Christmas.

“Your problem is that you didn’t wait until Christmas Eve to shop,” my dear husband responded.

His comment boggled my imagination. I could just see what kind of Christmas we’d have if I waited until Christmas Eve to begin.

Shopping on Christmas Eve.
