Christmas Traditions

Jon and I have established some of our own Christmas traditions, which is lovely, but one of my favorite parts of the holiday season is being enveloped in his family's rituals.  Today we drove out to a tree farm and picked out what must surely be the Platonic ideal of a Norway Spruce; the early part of the afternoon, after a lunch of runny cheese and crusty bread and cold pork pie, was spent in the sitting room twining tinsel and lights around the tree and hanging baubles and candles from the branches.  We're now all curled up in front of the fire watching The Nightmare Before Christmas and casting admiring glances at our handiwork in the corner of the room.

I hope you're all having a wonderful pre-Christmas weekend!  Just five more days of work until we get to enjoy gingersnaps and mulled wine and - oh, wait, I've been doing that since Thanksgiving ended.  Oops!
