There are many Christmas songs that I love: Silent Night, Away in a Manager, Mary Did You Know?, O Little Town of Bethlehem, Little Drummer Boy, What Child is This. The one that I could do without ever hearing again is Grandma Got Runover by a Reindeer.
I loved the ornaments we had for the kids for their first Christmases. However, one year they took down the tree and I haven’t seen those ornaments since. Each year, we try to buy an angel, either an ornament or a tree topper, to commemorate our angel baby Dorian who was stillborn 15 July 1993.
Christmas dinner here is a repeat of Thanksgiving! I love those foods very much and consider that whole meal a treat.
Every year, at some point between Thanksgiving and Christmas, we watch the original Miracle on 34th Street and It’s a Wonderful Life. We always ring in the New Year with a kiss, even though the New Year’s night between 2012 and 2013 got interrupted by a blasted nurse walking in just as the ball dropped, so I missed seeing it drop that night. That was the only one that I didn’t see in our 32 years together so far. We still got our kiss that night, though. She didn’t rob me of that. 🙂
