Dennis was home for the Christmas in the year 2000 early and actually before the holidays.  Dennis had to return to New York because he was scheduled to work during Christmas week.

Gore vs. Bush Decision makes it a shocking holiday and a shocking time in American History

The most significant event that I remember of this 2000 holiday, was driving down the road between Augusta and Durand and hearing the decision that Bush won the 2000 presidential election as decided by the Supreme Court of the US.  The holiday was important but the decision more important to life in America.  The decision was on December 12 2000.  This decision pinpoints this year as the most significant of all my lifetime holidays

This decision is remembered like I remember the moment of hearing Kennedy's assassination. NPR was on the car radio and I was on Highway 12 at the corner of County AF (aka County HH) near Augusta.  It was about 4:30 pm

Helton did not make this holiday, he too had to work in New York
