In northwest Tennessee, folks ask each other, "Did you have a big Christmas?"
They don't mean big in terms of a big pile of presents. They mean big in terms of celebration - family get-togethers, meals, parties, church events.
Here at 9 Dogs Howling, we had a real big New Year's Day. It totally wiped out Georgie and Polly. Fortunately there were plenty of sunny spots to recover in.
