December has entered 2011 with with a vengeance. I don't know what anyone ever did to it, but it has made its presence felt. Southern California is experiencing hurricane-force winds that are knocking down trees, power lines, and otherwise wreaking havoc.
I'm not a fan of the wind, especially at this velocity, but I do love December! Winter, chilly nights, clear skies, Christmas, my birthday, and other happy events are associated with this month.
One of my favorite songs about December is called, coincidentally enough, "December," by Collective Soul. I have no idea what the lyrics mean, but it's an awesome sing-along/driving song.
