Christmas Day. Just Spouse and I, a Scrabble game and Christmas music. I feel so liberated! No frenetic activity; no gorging indiscriminately; no hordes of people, squabbling kids, bickering adults. Ah! Peace on Earth, at least on this little patch of it.

I like Christmasses like that--quiet, at home, no fussing. We bailed out of the madness when Colin was a baby. After dragging a crying kid from one house to the next, I vowed we would not do that again--and we didn't. Of course, there was a very angry Grandma after that, but that's how it goes.

Glad you had a nice day, pally!

Lin, "liberating" as I said. It is "peace on earth." Today was quiet, too, and snowy.
