Things have slowed down for a little while and I’m happy for the rest. All of my shopping is done, and now I’m just waiting for the Christmas gifts to come in the mail. I’ve managed to mostly stay out of stores so far, and the season has been remarkably unhurried and at our own pace. About the only thing I bought at a store this year was a quick stop at Yankee Candle. My husband and I compromised this year and put up an artificial tree, but it’s still not Christmas until the entire house smells like pine. :)
Sometime this week we’ll be exchanging gifts. My husband and I visit an average of four or five houses between Christmas and Christmas Eve, so we hate to be rushed; also, he’s really awful and keeping gifts from me. “…Do you want your Christmas present?” He inevitably asks several times a night. Silly husbands. :) It makes a nice tradition for us, though; and it’s hardly the traditional twelve days of feasting, but it does serve to extend the holiday a little bit longer. We’ll give it a good run while it’s here.
I hope your holiday season is enjoyable thus far and that you have the time to create your own traditions.
