This is a response to volume 4, Larry Card Number 3 ("It's True")...

Good Larry. Since you ask about my name you are going to get the story.

I was due on Ground Hog's Day but being the intelligent woman that I am, I decided to come for the preferable holiday. Five days before Christmas my mom went to an afternoon appointment at the doctor's and told him she had felt ill all day and maybe she had the flu. The doctor said it wasn't the flu at all but that she was in labor.

Fast deliveries and significant names were nothing new to mom. She had my older sister in the car and named her after the mom's sister who owned the car (it was better than naming her Oldsmobile). Back to me - she rushed to the hospital where she had me 6 weeks early and in the hallway, she never did see the inside of a delivery room.

People had all sorts of suggestions on names such as Carol, Merry, Chris, etc. Holly was inspired by mom's dinner tray, there was a sprig of holly on it and mom said, "That's it!"

I'm sorry but you asked.
