Christmas has come and gone, and I’m sitting here amid the glorious aftermath. This season has been wonderful, and I’ve tried my hardest to enjoy every bit of it. As a slightly Christmas obsessed person, I spend a substantial portion of the year looking forward to the holiday season, and then get depressed when it’s over in a flash. This year, however, I truly feel I’ve been able to have time to appreciate all of the things I love about Christmas. Bethany hosted the most lovely Christmas tea for my four sisters and I last week. We wore festive dresses, watched White Christmas, and drank pots and pots of tea. It was wonderful.
My little sisters woke me up pretty early on Christmas morning. Santa still comes to our house even though the youngest child is 14- I’m slightly convinced that my dad just might be the real Santa Clause. We enjoyed opening presents together and drinking hot tea and coffee, and then set to work to prepare our annual Christmas brunch. Our house was filled with cousins, grandparents, aunts and uncles, good food, and lots of love.
