It’s nice to have moments throughout the holiday season when you can truly feel the spirit of it. I had one of those today. I went to see my friend from college, and her husband and infant son, and a couple of their friends, for the usual monthly game day.
There I was standing with them in their kitchen. She was baking cookies along with her housemate. We randomly started singing “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” and then “Let It Snow”.
In their living room, the Christmas tree was up (and they had a rather interesting ornament on it, of a half-naked Santa Claus with a ball in his mouth and strapped to a couple of giant candy canes, LOL!), and they had a string of lights long their ceiling edges.
And we sat their playing games and listening to twisted Christmas carols.
Mmmm. ‘Tis the season. Christmas time with nice people. Love such moments.
Made it even nicer when I saw on their table they had received the NYRA holiday card I’d sent them. Hehehe.
