Comfort and Joy
These two words from my favorite Christmas carol describe this week between holidays perfectly. I love Christmas, but the week between Christmas and New Year is my very favorite.
I love the joy of a day spent with family, the look on faces when they open new things they have been dreaming and wishing for. I love the comfort of no more rushing, no more wrapping and no more wondering.....
What did I get?
Will he like his present?
What if it doesn't fit her?
Now is the time to watch epic movies (LOTR is a favorite anround here), read new books (I've already finished one), eat up those cookies so you never have to see them again (until next year) and play with new toys.
I am even looking forward to this weekend, when to start my new year I will be taking down all our Christmas decorations with Gone With the Wind playing in the background all day. I have done this for years, even the girl is looking forward to seeing Scarlet and Rhett.
So party all night and nurse your first hangover of the year on 1/1/12 if that's what you love to do, but frankly I don't give a damn...
