MERRY CHRISTMAS to All! If we listened to the ads and the store hype, we'd probably believe that our national Christmas tradition is all about shopping. The truth is that we all have special rituals and customs that reflect our diverse heritages. The Christmas tree, holly and even the character of Santa Claus all evolved from stories and customs of other cultures. Whichever holiday you celebrate, The MountainGnome and The MountainGnomes grandchildren, Bobby and Sarah, wishes its members a Merry Christmas and an all around festive holiday season!

I was thinkin' about a nice warm weather trip to Cuba, but I'm not sure Castro has a hankerin' fer us folks yet. What say a nice trip to The Caribbean Island of St. Lucia. The island has some of the finest scenery in the West Indies including the spectacular and famous Pitons (Gros Piton - 2,461 feet and Petit Piton - 2,461) which rise majestically out of the sea near Soufrière. The highest peak on the island is Mornie Gimie (3,145 feet). Close by the Pitons, is the volcano which vents hydrogen sulphide, steam and other gases and deposit sulphur and other compounds. You can actually drive into the volcano where you will find the sulphur springs with their curative properties. This enormously lush island has many green valleys, banana plantations, excellent diving and secluded bays for yachtsmen. Now can't ya just feel them nice warm winds?! AAAAHHHHHH YESSSSSSSSS!
