Merry Christmas Night...

...Y'all...

And once again the big day has come and gone...hope yours was a good day spent with people you love.

When I was just a stripling I do believe the best night of the year was Christmas Eve...all the anticipation of Christmas was finally right there...so close I could taste it...excitement was at fever pitch, and we even got to listen to the Santa Claus NORAD report that tracks the Jolly Old Elf himself as he circles the globe...
...so much fun...

And then it was off to bed for a sleepless night, followed by what seemed like an eternity until finally...the thrill of Christmas morning.

But of course that was followed by Christmas night...and truly, there were times I felt like crying as the day came to a close.

Yes, there was still a week of Christmas vacation left before we were condemned to the drudgery of the schoolhouse again, but...

A whole year before Christmas came?  Agony!

Thankfully those days of emotional extremes are long gone...Christmas gatherings happened before the big day, right up until Christmas Eve...and of course my guys are all grown now and on their own...youngest is 31 now...so we slept in then enjoyed a leisurely day watching the snow storm swirling outside...
...while the fire warmed us and we listened to Christmas carols ("Santa's a Scotsman...it's often where he goes...he moved from Glasgow to Lapland...following Rudolph's nose...")

And just like back in the day, I have another week of time off before it's back to the real world...

Going to do my best to enjoy each moment of every day...but for now...

later, mcm fans...
