As promised, we awoke this morning to snow. Just a bit, you know; just enough to make the drive in a bit precarious, and me thankful my commute is nil.
I guess this makes it a white Christmas. It is, after all, the 3rd day of Christmas. While retailers here in the states would have us believe it’s all said and done–that the 12 Days of Christmas are all about sales and jingles leading up to the big day–it’s really nothing of the sort.
Now, those in Medieval England, they could teach us a thing or two about Christmastide . . .
For them it was twelve straight days of feasting and drinking, singing and dancing–of all around merry making.
Throw in a nap or two, and that’s something I could get use to!
After all, it seems more and more of the season is filled with preparation–baking and cooking, buying and wrapping. Then, in a blink of an eye, it’s done.
Let’s not give in just yet, shall we? Whether life as usual, or an extended holiday, let’s find a little extra time to revel. Let’s give this celebration a run for it’s money . . .
Cheers, my friends!
