***Pearl Harbor Day*** The Spirit of Christmas Treasure Hunt

The Spirit of Christmas Treasure Hunt begins today! Today is also Pearl Harbor Day.

A little bit of history about Pearl Harbor, 1941 ~
On the morning of December 7, 1941, Japanese bombers staged a surprise attack on U.S. military and naval forces in Hawaii. As a result of that attack, the United States suffered 3,435 casualties.  Today is a good day to remember both those dedicated service people, and the dedicated people who serve today.  It is a good day to remember that freedom is not free.

Here are a few blog posts that honor our veterans ~





Thank you for serving our country so that we may enjoy freedom.  May your celebrations be full of the true Spirit of Christmas!

Blessings,
Kathy

  6. I guess I remember it because my father made a recording of the speech that the president made announcing America was at war. It made a big impact to hear my father's voice on an old 78 record. Shortly after that he inlisted in the Navy.

    Glad that you all enjoyed the post.
