Clock lovers – take a break and enjoy the holiday season with family and friends

Without the establishment of the railroad, we would not have Standard Time

Every day, it seems, I am involved in the pursuit of learning more and more about the world of horology.

If I am not actually working on an antique or vintage clock I am researching information about a clock issue, taking photos/videos of clocks, online shopping for clocks or writing for my blog. But I also know that at certain times of the year I must put down my tools, close my books, step away from the keyboard and spend precious time with friends and family. Christmas is important to me.

Remember the simpler things in life
Christmas is a special time of the year

Gift-giving? My kids stress every year over what to get dad for Christmas. However, it is the little things I always appreciate in my Christmas stocking. Kids, if you want to stuff my stocking, a new pair of cloth gloves, a box of toothpicks, cotton swabs, or an artist paintbrush will do just fine.

Christmas is a time of joy, not of giving, unless the giving is in the form of love and appreciation for friends, family and colleagues.

So, if you are looking for that special gift for the clock lover in your family remember the simpler things in life.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone.
