Somehow, I made it to the 23rd, semester's work done, and we left for Maine that day. Since then, there's been some activity, some rest. For today, a post on holiday celebrations.
Of course, we have been lighting Chanukah candles and exchanging gifts:
But we also had a pretty spectacular Christmas, for a household that doesn't "celebrate" Christmas. We got unexpected snow (about 3-4 inches) that fell in gentle, big flakes most of the day. We had a quiet, cozy, enjoyable day.
We also made a Festivus pole (look it up, if you don't remember). I talked the kids into a quick "feats of strength" with the pole itself, rather than arm wrestling.
What were your favorite holiday celebrations this year?
