I have participated in a few Christmas festivities, Choir concerts and special events, these next 10 or so days are the 'real' Christmas time. Our tree is finally finished, we decorated it on Saturday, Christmas gifts were wrapped last night and the turkey is in the fridge. We have 3 family dinners, one with just us (4) and 2 others with extended family. We are never really ready!
Tonight is clean-up, hide all those 'nests' of knitting that have accumulated over the past few weeks. Finding the dining room table will require more than just a few minutes and a big recycling box! (I don't know how or why I think that someday I might need or read everything that comes into the house!)
This is a time for family and we celebrate with those who are important to us, and are reminded that others are facing a Christmas without someone important for the first or third or tenth time.
Keep safe everyone, happy Holidays and a Very Merry Christmas Season.
See you January 2nd!
