The pudding is steaming in the oven. The stew is simmering on the stove. #1 Son will be here soon. And it is snowing.
Snowing! On Christmas! Look! There’s proof!
Where I grew up, it was a strange Christmas that didn’t have snow falling — on the actual day, you know. There was usually already a fair bit on the ground.
Here in Portland… not so much. It’s pretty much the opposite. If we’re lucky the sun shines. If not, it rains. But snow? This is a new and wondrous thing!
May your days be merry and bright.
And may all your Chriskwanzakahfestivusolstices be white.
