Some people really go to town when it comes to Christmas decorations and that can even include decorating the barn or stable where they house their equine friends.

How Many Ways Can You Say Cat?

When a kid only wants one thing for Christmas they can be incredibly persistent toward achieving this goal. This is not just wishful thinking at this point, it is a mission from God.
