The Wife and I — along with The World’s Coolest Mother-In-Law — just wrapped up our traditional Christmas Eve dinner — filet mignon topped with crab and asparagus this year — and finished wrapping the last few gifts that get delivered tomorrow. We’re going to enjoy another beer or two before heading to bed in plenty of time for Santa to have free reign in the house overnight.
I won’t be spending a whole lot of time with the computer in the next day or two, so I’ll pose the annual question now: What’s the best present you gave, and what’s the best one you got?
As busy as people tend to be this time of year, it’s easy for the good stuff to get pushed aside. This is about when I usually remember — on Christmas Eve, having a nice dinner with The Wife. Most of the work is behind us. Christmases with our families are still on the horizon. And we’ll get to see old and new friends.
All that stuff is what’s really important about Christmas. I hope you get some of that for yourself in the next few days.
