Christmas Holidays Once Again


Well, here it is one week from Christmas and this will be our last blog until after New Year’s. We bought two new sets of tree lights this morning to go on the too large tree that our grandson and his best friend will have gone out and cut for us. I say too large because when you are in your 80’s you can’t maneuver around on a ladder as you used to, but Christmas for the younger set must be as close to what it has always been for them as can be. The house will have to be decorated, furniture moved around, dining room table expanded, etc, etc.

In the midst of that, gingerbread houses have been made by self and daughter for a decorating party for friends and family as has been the case for as long as I can remember. An early version of getting the house ready for lots (16) of people will be run. Sun room emptied, card tables and chairs brought in, decorating candy laid out, and then done in reverse two hours later

Unlike previous Christmas seasons, however, the country has an unexpected President to take office in January. And, that is shaping up to be a doozer! It’s probably enough to say that the world is as Trump says it is: the Russian communists did not release those documents at the end of the campaign alleging the Democrats had lied.

Fortunately, I have major activities that are more pressing than national politics. The sun room is to be rearranged (again), the tree brought in, decorations laid out, candles put in windows and on Christmas Eve, the tree is to be decorated. Oh, and packages to be wrapped. Don’t ask about timing and order, that’s just the way it is.

Merry Christmas!
