The Day After Christmas

Is Christmas over? 

Christmas Table 
Some people believe that it is, but in reality we are a people of Christmas. It is the Christmas spirit that lives in us throughout the year that sets us apart and makes us different. 

So, no, Christmas is not over--it remains alive in our hearts.

It was a great day with family. 

Chris and I began the day alone, together exchanging gifts and enjoying the dawn of Christmas as it occurred. It was different for us, but very nice. The weather for the day was awesome, about as good as can be expected for a late-December day--clear and temperatures in the 40's. I know the cold weather is coming as January dawns. 

As Christmas Begins
Once the family arrived, beginning doubt 1 PM, things really started to happen. 

With dinner planned for about 4:30 and the meat in the oven, we conducted the  gift exchange. Gifts were exchanged and a good time was had by all. I have to confess, I do not have any returns!  Yay!

After dinner we played a few games and then people began to drift away home. 

It was a great family day together. 

Another Christmas and another year.
