Americans say gathering with family and friends is what they most look forward to about Christmas and the holidays. Many of our Robson Ranch neighbors look forward to their festive get-togethers here at the Ranch.

There’s no place like Terry and Mike Gilberti’s for Christmastide. Jolly Old Saint Nicholas and tidings and tinsel decked the halls. Festive food and drink bedecked the tables, and the joy of the season filled the air.

Entertaining games were initiated. Terry introduced us to a Chinese Christmas gift exchange with a twist. If you rolled the dice and got snake eyes, your gift could be exchanged for more a sought-after present. Christmas Bingo was so much fun. Hershey’s Holiday Kisses were our bingo markers. Winners of the Christmas Bingo games received splendid prizes.

The holiday season brings fellowship and good cheer among friends.

“Of peace on earth, good will to  men!”
