I woke up at seven this morning, which is the latest I’ve ever woken up on Christmas, and seems to be Adult Christmas Standard time for Anna (me). I’ve set up the fireplace for early morning pyromania, wrapped the last of J.’s gifts, and set out presents that Santa left. In an hour or so, I will be waking J. up with much bouncing and carolling, and when he walks into the living room it will be magically lit from the hundreds of candles I’ve been collecting for this moment. Okay, so there are maybe twelve. It’s enough.
Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays to everyone.
