I don't think it's the very first white Christmas I've spent in Martinsville, but it's the only one in anything like recent memory. Of course, the better part of the snow came the other day, but there's still plenty out there to go around.
Fortunately, the Krismus Krud seems to have subsided, and all in all, it was an exceedingly pleasant day, with some nice gifts given and received, food aplenty, and a meaningful gathering with family and friends. While everyone else napped this afternoon, I got about 1.5K words written in the new story I'm working on. Then it was over to our friends, the Albaneses, for a couple of fun scary movies — Let the Right One In and Blackout. Oh, and more goodies to eat and drink.
And that's what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.
