The kids in Amarillo headed back to school on Monday looking forward to the Christmas break that is just ahead of them. There is a lot of magic in the air this time of year. The Christmas tree may be up. The lights are on the house. The Christmas inflatables fill the yard.
It all started with a simple closing of a restaurant on Halloween. OK, some places give their staff off for some holidays so maybe this wasn't so crazy. That one closed day didn't necessarily mean things were not looking up for a restaurant that a lot of us loved.
