happy holy days

Merry Christmas! I hope you've had a good one. My family and I went to church last night at 10:00 p.m. Today we exchanged gifts and ate some delicious food including the Oreo Truffles you've been reading about. There was another sweet treat for me under the tree. I am now all about the Pomegranate Fruit Slices from Nancy Adams Confections. Each year my wife loves to get the annual White House Christmas Ornament from her mother. This year was no exception.

One day last week, right after school, I took my
son to do his Christmas shopping. He wanted to buy gifts for each member of the family with some of the money he had earned over the summer. However, his money was in the bank and we didn't have time to go there first. I offered to use my credit card and let him pay me back later. I helped him pick out presents for his mother and his sister. He already knew exactly what he wanted to get me. As we walked to the cash register, he kept my gift hidden in his pocket. I was a little stressed that it would look like we were trying to shoplift but it worked out fine when the checkout clerk was able to ring up the sale without me seeing what Frank Jr. had chosen for me. This morning I was surprised and delighted to find that he had given me a DVD of "My Super Ex-Girlfriend." I was especially happy because I would finally get to see the first 15 minutes of the movie. The deleted scenes are pretty entertaining too.

Today was the first day of Christmas. The twelve days of Christmas run through the feast of the Epiphany on January 6th. An editorial in the Buffalo News accurately describes my feelings that Christmas music on the radio starts too early and ends too soon. Most of us are still celebrating Christmas through New Year's Day at least. If you are planning on hauling your tree to the curb tomorrow morning, you might have a little bit of the Grinch in you.
