It is said The Twelve Days of Christmas helps young Catholics to learn their faith. This is all good, but besides the good food, carols, singing around the Christmas Tree, the presents, the in-laws, the visit to Santa Claus, and the endless list of Holiday activities, everybody needs a good training plan for the Holidays. For all the snow lovin’ masters, juniors, and everyone else here is a sample of my training plan to work off those double fudge truffles. What’s your plan for the Holiday Season and the New Year?
