It’s beginning to look a lot like…it hasn’t in years! We’ve been away for Christmas, or going away right after, so we haven’t had a tree, for years now. The General Store came through with a beauty. Wonderful to decorate, knowing that Jen and family, and Drea will share Christmas with us. Jen et al were in N.Z. the last 6 Christmases, and Drea in L.A. the last 8 I think…exciting. Especially imagining what Asa will try to do to the tree.
But in remembering the reason for the season, it was also delightful to be in this tiny church in Lower East Chezzetcook, and catch the Christmas vibe there, via wonderful musicians. I do not have any religious leanings, but I am sentimental towards traditions. If I was in L.A. right now with Tish, I’d be enjoying Chanukah with them, and later Christmas with them. Twice as much tradition to enjoy. To me it’s all about binding families together. And I’m into families.
