Susanne is off today so I’m filling her regular Monday slot with a list of her greatest Christmas hits from this and previous years.
If you are new to The Next Phase Blog, or just started reading Susanne’s posts, this is a good opportunity for you to catch up. Here is a collection of Suze’s Christmas posts about friends, family, cooking, the holidays and the way we celebrate Christmas. Her insights are wonderful and the poems are terrific.

Food and Cooking
As everyone who follows Susanne’s posts knows, she loves food and cooking. Here are three of her posts dedicated to the culinary arts.
Military and Veterans
Susanne has a particular interest in the military and that continues with Christmas traditions. Here are some she has participated in and one that happened before we all were born. Two of these posts are in verse. Why are you surprised?
