The house was loud, the voices cheery, the laughter full as we gathered together as a family to celebrate Christmas. We filled our bellies and enjoyed the company of loved ones we don't get to see often and those we do and still love to be near them more. It's a boisterous gathering full of turkey and gravy, mashed potatoes, foot comparisons, cute chocolates, adorable pups, good friends, .... wonderful people.
Christmas Eve eve we took a road trip in -20 C or so (with the windchill) weather to an acreage an hour out of town to see 5 acres of lights. It was beautiful .... and cold!!
All in all it was a joyful celebration of the birth of our Saviour. That's what Christmas is to me. It's Jesus, hope, charity. love. family, togetherness, joy.... I am reminded of Dr. Seuss' quote from The Grinch Who Stole Christmas .... "maybe Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas perhaps, means a little bit more." I hope your Christmas was something more...
Merry Christmas and all the best in the new year. Cheers!!
