Christmas really is one of the most lovely times of the year. Everyone makes an effort to be cheerful and warmhearted, and those of us who are so fortunate are able to give and receive wonderful gifts.
Some things about Christmas never change. Not necessarily “traditions”, but things that always occur. For example, my grandfather starts hollering when he’s having difficulty operating the DVD player, when we’re trying to watch Christmas Vacation (one of my all-time favourite Christmas movies, by the way). It’s one of those things where I can’t help but smile and giggle, listening to him struggle like always. It’s almost cute, in a way.
This is my Christmas Tree, this morning (around 7:30 am), before any presents were touched (except those fussed with by the cat, Maisy).
