Christmas Eve, a day of anticipation, last-minute preparations, or perhaps both was followed by the magic of Christmas Day!
I adored dragging out the ornaments - antique and new - to turn a beautiful tree into a splendid one. With the Nativity scene and all the packages under the tree, it was the focus of our living room until New Year's Day.
Earlier this week I hung my wreath on the door in memory of my family's traditions and today I will awake to repeat the traditions of my lifetime.
I hope you have a wonderful Christmas. Even if you don't celebrate Christmas as a religious holiday, it's such a festive time of year - a national holiday, a day of dinners with family and friends, a day of recollections.
May you all have a very, Merry Christmas.
