So we’re a couple days into the first full week of the New Year. How bout’ them resolutions? Chances are that if you are like most Americans (according to statistics not us, we believe in you) you have already given up or given in to the grand resolution you had been so eager to keep with just a few days ago.
With only a few more days left in 2012, we rush to find the perfect festive attire, stock up on noise makers, and look forward to the big countdown. Now for many of us, the New Year doesn’t just mean parties, champagne, and those big funny glasses that spell out the year, it also means a fresh start or a chance to become a better you.
With all the holiday parties, mall Santa’s, and rushing around, it is easy to get caught up in all the hustle and bustle of the season. However, at this time of the year, it is important to slow down and remember that behind all the red and green and silver and gold, the true spirit of the season is about giving to others. Especially those in need.
Nothing says the holidays like a delicious, perfectly spiced (not spiked!) cup of homemade Eggnog. And everyone knows it takes a few cups of love, mixed with a healthy serving of holiday cheer along with grandma’s secret recipe to make the perfect batch.

Every year on November 11, we take a day to honor all the sacrifices veterans have made to keep our country free. At exactly 11 a.m. on November 11th, a color guard composed of members from all military branches honors America’s veterans in a ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery. Around the country in both cities and small towns, Americans salute veterans through their own celebrations including parades and ceremonies. Does your town or family have a unique way of honoring vets?
Many of us have so much to be grateful for during this season of thanks. But did you know that one out of six Americans lives in hunger? Even if you’re not aware of people going hungry in your community, chances are that it’s happening. Nationwide food bank organization Feeding America recently conducted a study that showed that children in every county in the nation are struggling with hunger.
