Two days till Christmas Eve… and an intimate family dinner. Three days till Christmas, and a raucous pot-luck supper filled with games, good cheer, and friends old and new.
I love the tradition of sharing the foods associated with these holidays. When we were children, as a way to decorate the tree, and probably keep my sisters and me occupied, we used to string popcorn and cranberries to use as a garland on our tree. It took a few days to accomplish, but we enjoyed the time spent with our Mom, having her undivided attention while eating a piece of popcorn for every one we strung!
Feeling sentimental, I did it again for the first time in years, and adorned my tiny tree. Now, all is right with the world.
I wish you all a very Happy Holiday Season, and a Healthy, Prosperous, New Year! Remember… the very best gift you can give, is that of your time and your attention.
