Look What I Did

Well, so far this Christmas season I have done the following: decorated a Christmas tree, gone Christmas caroling, bought (and drank) Starbucks Christmas frappuccino, sang in a Christmas choir, read Advent readings, bought Christmas gifts, wrapped Christmas gifts, opened Christmas gifts, hung a Christmas wreath and scads of little twinkling lights on the outside of my house, drank eggnog, ate pecan pie, bought a turkey and dressing for Christmas dinner, watched claymation “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town,” gone home for Christmas (a bit early), read a Christmas sermon by Gregory of Nazianzus, gone on a Christmas lights spotting tour of the city, said “Merry Christmas” about four thousand times, delivered an Advent homily, answered my daughter’s question “How much longer till Christmas?” a few dozen times, and gone to a couple of Christmas parties. No, I have not yet watched “It’s a Wonderful Life,” but I will soon.

I warmed up to Christmas a bit late, in spite of all this activity. But now that the Big Day is almost here, I finally feel it.

Merry Christmas, everyone in the blogosphere.  The Nativity of our Lord is come: rejoice!

  1. David,

    You sound a little too busy to watch the full-length It’s a Wonderful Life, so here’s a quicker (and bunnier) version. Merry Christmas.

    Habemus Rex!
