And to all a good night!

xmastreeThe best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other.

~ William E Vaughan (as Burton Hillis)

I was going to talk about tradition—how “yours, mine and ours” pertains. The need for it. The fun of it. The sheer joy of the season while watching the older kids teach, tease and torture the younger.

I was going to discuss the Holiday Lights Gong Show. How we drove around looking for the best and worst. How every song from the backseat was twisted and wrong. Because our kids are amazing.

I was going to do a blog based on that quote—rambling in a lovely tangent-laden weave of family and friends and how the two combine. Bah. Rather than talk about family, I think I’ll just go hang out with mine. Those of blood, those of love and those we’ve adopted as our own.

Yule. Hanukkah. Kwanzaa. Christmas with Santa. Christmas with Jesus…

However.

Whatever.

I hope you have a happy one!
