A Year of Gratitude - Day One Hundred Ninety-six

Day 196 - Christmas
Christmas is my favorite holiday.  Everyone seems to be in a better mood (apart from those who stampede toward the “best deals” - such behavior baffles me).  Streets are lined with lights in the trees; all the cliches you hear on the radio seem to be true.  Sometimes, anyway.
Today was a nice, quiet, relaxed Christmas.  Mom and I opened gifts with a cup of egg nog in hand.  We had friends over for a prime rib dinner - my dad’s favorite holiday meal.  Great conversation.  What more can you ask for?  
I am grateful to be able to spend this holiday with people I care about and who keep my Christmas joyful.
