Family, food, travel, Christmas movies. Christmas Eve and Christmas Day are probably two days that most people are too busy to pick up a book. I'll save a review of a novel about Los Alamos for after Christmas.
Instead, I hope you're enjoying your holiday traditions, however you celebrate. If that means quiet time, just for you, I hope you enjoy the solitude and the time to reflect. If you're celebrating time with family and friends, I hope you appreciate them.
Celebrations change over the years. My family often celebrated on Christmas Eve because my father worked shift work and wasn't always home on Christmas Day. And, we made Christmas Eve trips to my grandparents' house, and then looked for Rudolph's nose in the sky on the way home. Once I was married, Jim and I celebrated on Christmas Eve with food and special Christmas readings. This year, I'm heading to friends' for dinner.
Merry Christmas Eve! It may be a busy day for you, or the calm before the hecticness of Christmas Day. I wish you a few moments to yourself, a little quiet time, maybe for a Christmas reading or two. And, I wish you memories of those you love.
