When Santa is both serious…and silly!

Hello, fellow humans! (*waves over-enthusiastically to make up for having to send a virtual message…) We here at Casa WestEnders wish you cheerful greetings of the season, from that pleasant yet somewhat confusing space between Christmas and New Year’s, when time basically loses all meaning if you’re fortunate enough to have the week free fromContinue reading “When Santa is both serious…and silly!”
