Depending on how good a shopper you are, you’re looking at about $45,000 for the 12 Days of Christmas. That includes swapping the swans for ducks. Thats just one verse. Remember there are 12 verses. By the time the 12 days is up, your True Love would have bought 12 partridges and 12 pear trees. 22 turtle doves, 30 french hens, and 48 calling birds. Now we have a bigger problem. My True Love just gifted me a farm. I guess I can send each of the 40 Maids-a-Milking home with a couple pets, problem solved.
Then There is the High-Hand Way
High-Hand’s Holiday Schedule

High-Hand Brewery is open until 9:00pm offering delicious food, and great craft beer paired with live entertainment on The Stage. No reservations.
This year High-Hand is donating a portion of its December sales to a local organization called Compassion Planet. I have watched it grow over the last decade. Started by Scott and Jacquie Flanagan and with the help of Todd and Luann Johnson, Compassion Planet serves aged-out foster youth in a one year mentoring program. These mentoring programs help with life skills training, development skills, and workforce development skills. The stories and the journeys of these incredible youths hit home for me in so many ways.
We are hoping that you will join us for High-Hand 12 Days of Christmas starting November 30th.
Remember gifting and giving are two totally different things. One comes form the head the other comes form the heart.
