Dear Almanac readers,
Welcome December—which comes from the Latin word decem meaning “ten” because this had been the 10th month of the early Roman calendar.
This month brings with it snow (for some), family, feasts, and fun, but also remember to grab some hot cocoa during this winter month and relax when you can.
In today's issue, we include some nature-inspired ways to deck the halls—such as making your own wreaths. Also, make sure you've prepared the garden and yard for winter!

Christmas is coming, the geese are getting fat,
Please to put a penny in the old man’s hat;
If you haven’t got a penny, a ha’penny will do,
If you haven’t got a ha’penny, God bless you!
