Dear Mom and Dad,

I received your Christmas card and also one from the Mother's Club. Thank You.

I've got a couple of pictures that I'll send to you for my scrapbook.

Today was a pretty nice day. We're supposed to get off this Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I hope so. We're going to have midnight Mass on Christmas Eve.

Are you going to have a white Christmas? I don't think we will, we don't have any snow here yet. The coldest months here are January and February. So far it hasn't been too bad. At least it hasn't bothered me.

There isn't anything more to say. The hillbilly music is on now.

I'm going to do some reading then go to chow and after that I'll go to the movie. So till next time—
