Though we had the right, we didn’t fight. Not for this year’s holiday party that we usually have. The stars were not aligned for it to happen, though I suppose we could have tried a little harder.
Between my current job and its travel, my transition into a new job and that the holiday is falling in the middle of a week, there wasn’t much of a chance to get our friends together for this year. Not that we needed a huge turn-out. Whomever we invite and however many can show is just fine.
But I also didn’t want to do it half-assed either. So it kind of passed us by as much as we passed it by.
Yesterday was our big family get together. Today, it is just Denton and myself – sleeping in, hanging out, doing some gift exchange. Somewhere in between we made French Freedom toast. But we are all for the pagan aspects of the holiday. We love the tree and its 1000 lights. (all those gifts are not ours – we had 20 folks over last night, plus my parent’s birthday.)
