I sometimes think we expect too much of Christmas Day.
We try to crowd into it the long arrears of kindliness and humanity of the whole year.
As for me, I like to take my Christmas a little at a time, all through the year. And thus I drift along into the holidays – let them overtake me unexpectedly – waking up some find morning and suddenly saying to myself: “Why, this is Christmas Day!”
Mr Chiots and I were talking about this very idea yesterday. When we woke up yesterday we were laughing that Christmas Day is just like every day for us. Since we both work from home we’re both here all day every day. We actually did take the day off and not do much work at all. We worked on our puzzle, went on a long walk, watched a Discovery show about the Ididerod, and made a delicious meal of homemade pizza. It was a wonderfully relaxing day, a perfect Christmas.
What’s your idea of the perfect Christmas day?Filed under Holidays, Quote | Comments (10)
