Last year we talked about traditions. This year, I wanna hear about prezzies. Tell me the one thing you're really hoping to recieve.

Now tell me what you've gotten someone else that you're especially pleased with.

On a scale of 1 being much, much more boring, unmagical and pathetic to 5 being amazing, festive and glorious, how does Christmas as an adult compare to your childhood Christmases?

And a very happy w00t-I-got-time-off to you. :) I was one of the two who actually checked off "religious service..." My mom's Christian, and it makes her really happy when L and I go to the Christmas Eve service. And I gotta say, it's nice running into people I haven't seen for at least a year. Though L and I looked at each other a few times during the sermon as if to say "oh, are *we* ever going to hell..."

Tonight, we eat roast beast and seven gajillion kinds of desserts. That, to me, is Christmas. But honestly? All I need is the woman who makes my heart overflow. I should probably go see if she's awake yet.

A very happy day to you and yours!

The Pirate and I spent today together cooking, watching Mr. India and doing chicken chores and feeling exactly the same way. It brings tears of joy to my eyes to know that others get to be this happy too.
