The royal baby's first Christmas

Britain's Prince William carries his son Prince George as they arrive for his son's christening at Saint James's Palace in London on Oct 23, 2013 (Credit: Reuters/John Stillwell)The royal baby celebrated his first Christmas with his parents and the rest of the royal family.  Following tradition, his family exchanged presents on Christmas Eve rather than Christmas Day.  Then they changed into formal clothes for a black-tie dinner.  On Christmas Day, he attended church services with the entire family, followed by lunch and the Queen's annual televised address to the nation at 3 PM.  Quite a busy holiday for the little fellow.

His official title is His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge.  As impressive as that sounds, George has a ways to go to rival his grandfather.  The full name of Prince Charles of England is Charles Philip Arthur George of the House of Windsor.  His titles are: His Royal Highness, the Prince of Wales; Knight of the Garter; Knight, Order of the Thistle; Prince of Wales and Earl of Chester; Duke of Cornwall and Duke of Rothesay; Earl of Carrick and Baron Renfrew; Lord of the Isles and Great Steward of Scotland; Personal Aide-de-Camp to the Queen; and Great Master of the Order of the Bath.  Try fitting that onto a business card.

The Christmas gift that matters most

Christmas present with love from God, red wrapping paper with a white bow (Credit: Pearl via Lightstock)We survived Black Friday and Cyber Monday.  Today it's the "Day After Christmas Sale."  Fifteen percent of all Christmas sales occur after Christmas.

The malls may resemble your home today.  Are your trash cans overflowing with boxes of unwrapped gifts and balls of torn wrapping paper?  Is your Christmas tree looking a little forlorn?  Has the excitement already come down a notch or two?  Are you already moving on to New Year's and 2014?
