How do you celebrate the holidays at this time of year? Do you have a big gathering with lots of food and hubub? Do you do a quiet few days?
These days we spend our Christmas pretty quietly. We do a little decorating such as displaying a couple of Christmas quilts. One is here:
We usually spend our Christmas holidays with family. No one gets too carried away with decorations. Once in a while, we get a bit out of control with gifts (last year I made out like a bandit!). We visit and eat. Then we open gifts and have some snacks. Then we laze around and fix a meal. I think you detect the trend here.

It's a great quiet time. It's a relaxed time that give us time to think and plan. We enjoy the winter weather (usually from inside) and the time away from everyday life.
Christmas is a time for love. It is a time to love the ones you value most, think of the loved ones who have already gone, spend time with family and friends, and be content.
Enjoy good company and laughter and seek out contentment and joy. Thank you so much to those of you who have provided me with great companionship, laughter, and happiness. I look forward to more time and enjoyment with you.
