Today was Christmas and, as you can see, even the TSL cats got into it:
This year, Christmas was, for many of us, a bit more low-key than usual. That’s understandable, of course. For instance, I’m used to having a big family gathering for Christmas. Usually, on this day, I would be catching up with aunts and uncles and cousins from all over the country. The morning would be spent at one house and the afternoon at another and the evening and yet another. That didn’t happen this year, for obvious reasons. That said, my sisters and I were still able to keep a few our traditions alive.
For instance, I kept alive the tradition of waking up early and then wondering why everyone else was still asleep:
Every year, I make it a point to go for a drive on Christmas Day. It may sound like a minor thing but it’s something that I always look forward to.
And finally, there were the most important traditions. Like this one about watching certain movies over the course of the day. I’m happy to say that I not only watched A Christmas Story this morning (before we even unwrapped presents, if you need an example of just how early I woke up compared to everyone else) but that it was also the 800th films that I’ve watched this year.
After A Christmas Story, it was time to rewatch It’s A Wonderful Life on E! I also watched the 1983 Tom Cruise football film, All The Right Moves before joining my family in observing one of the greatest of all Christmas traditions:
Everyone celebrated Christmas in their own way. Here’s a few thoughts from the TSL crew:
To be honest, that’s what I always thought Boxing Day was but apparently, it’s a shopping holiday. That’s pretty nice since I was already planning on shopping tomorrow anyways.
Anyway, Happy Holidays, everyone! I hope it was a good one without any fear. Another year over and a new one just begun.
