Happy Boxing Day!
Well, happy Boxing Day all. I think I like Boxing Day just a tad more than Christmas… well, minus getting/giving presents. With two families close by it’s always a stretch to spend enough time with everyone, and sometimes a bit stressful trying to make sure no one feels jipped. Things were so much simpler when we were younger… I remember living at home, and the day after Christmas was always us girls curled up on the couch in our Christmas PJ’s watching old movies all day. We’d eat the leftovers from Christmas dinner (which for some reason we always ate on Christmas Eve?), drink Hot Cocoa (or decaf now that we’re older) and usually break out a game of Uno at some point in the evening. It was a day just to be together.
Well, now that we’re older it’s the day of Christmas returns. I can call my sister, Beth, and she’s probably out at the mall returning the things we gave her to get the things she really wanted. Michelle is probably working or scoping out the deals, and my parents have probably already started “de-Christmasing” the house. But here at the Fesko’s… I think I’m just going to curl up on the couch with my son, put White Christmas on the tele and exhale Christmas slowly. Not that any of the latter things are horrible or to be frowned upon… I think I just like having an excuse to be lazy and hold family close for one more day.
And in that spirit… I hope you enjoy our Christmas card.
