In fact, after all the hoopla of getting ready, the actual day was a bit of a relief. A time to breathe again. A time for reading new books and taking naps.
A time for eating the traditional mid-day meal of cheese and crackers and beef sticks.
And, as a special treat this year, a time for walking in the falling snow on Christmas night.
Wearing our Smittens. If you don't have a pair, you are missing out. Especially if you like to hold hands. And let's be honest- who doesn't like to hold hands?
I can't think of many winter activities I like more than being outside during a light snowfall. Add in the magic of Christmas, lights on all the houses, and my sweetheart and you've got a home run.
