You can keep the gift giving. I can live without it. But getting together with family, yes. Holiday lights everywhere, yes.After the long ordeal that is Christmas shopping, Kathy and I stopped at O'Duffy's for a cup of cheer and their mashed potato dish, Boxty. And along with the rich woods, and no televisions, there was this Christmas display. Spectacular? No. But really cool to look at and sit next to.
