Can I just say...

I hope you all have a good Christmas! May Santa bring all your hearts desire and may you all have enough to eat and drink. May you keep warm, or cool as required! May you all be healthy, over the festive season and beyond.

Have a good one!!

love to you all

Pat

Well I celebrated my holiday yesterday with Yule, but the rest of my family celebrates Christmas so the bulk of our celebration is yet to come.

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday and may we all embrace the new year with enthusiasm and love.

We had a lovely family dinner last night for Chanukah; my bro always cooks up the best food, and seeing my little grandnieces growing up is such a treat - they are now old enough that I can talk books with them! And I got three, count em, three gift cards to book stores.

We usually take my MIL to breakfast on Christmas day, then go to our house for hot cocoa and presents. Then we choose a movie to see - this time its Benjamin Button.
