I'm not sure I get 12 full days of Christmas, but I do get several "Christmas" sort of days.
1) A pre-Christmas with WG before he heads off the icy weather in the corral. The pre-Christmas was quite fun. We exchanged gifts, had yummy steak dinner...and now...well, though I'll miss him, it'll be a bit easier for me to handle it, now that I have one these. I do have the best boyfriend ever. And I told him so. Yes, I am exceedingly excited about this present. Yes, I am 27. Ah well, such is life.
2) Three full days of Christmas wonder with Mama and Daddy. Movie watching, game playing, a little bowling, a fine meal. I'm excited.
3) Monica and Sean arriving for our eleventh annual Christmas extravaganza. There will be a potluck. We will "do presents." And we will talk fondly about the past and with curiosity about the future.
I love the holidays. I love being surrounded by the ones I love, filling my days with tradition...oh...and singing Christmas carols at the top of my lungs.
Merry Christmas! May you spend time with the ones you love, not have to go to work and, quite simply, be happy.
