Merry Christmas

Christmas Eve was always such a funny day, so wondrous and yet so ordinary. You'd have to keep reminding yourself, "It's Christmas Eve!", all the while incongruously eating your cheerios, brushing your teeth, going through the motions. This all to push yourself forward, because the magic is never apparent until after the sun goes down, so you have to conjure it in the meantime. And enjoy this lazy lovely day, should you be so fortunate to be spending it as a holiday. It is to be hoped that those who aren't so blessed are granted an early dismissal.

Merry Christmas, and Happy Holidays from Pickle Me This. If you don't have any books on your tree, I'll cross my fingers you find some good ones under it.
