Our Christmas isn’t the way most people spend it. We don’t have family nearby (or within several thousand miles) and David always works Christmas eve and Christmas night (part of working at a 24/7, 365 operation and he offers to work it so the two other guys he works with who have young kids can take it off) so we’ll just spend it together quietly before he works.
Although it may sound sad/lonely and while I’d love to be with my family, there’s a certain peace that goes along with just being at home, just the two of us. It’s quiet and relaxing, in a romantic-winter-solstice-imagery kind of way. It’s what you make of it right?
So there will be painting, movies, snuggling on the couch and a big spiral ham (a tradition we like to keep). Christmas way simplified.
If you celebrate Christmas, I wish for you a wonderful holiday filled with whatever makes you happy. ♥
