I’m getting more cheerful as it gets closer to Christmas. That may seem strange because I pretty much hate Christmas. The reason I’m happy is it’s almost over for this year.

We do all our gift-giving and eating with our children and grandchildren on Christmas Eve so they can all go wherever they need to on Christmas day.
