There are only nine days left until Christmas. Really! Today I mailed my Christmas cards, along with a package each for my parents and in-laws. Santa has been duly stocked with the presents for under our tree. We’ve watched Elf (more than once), White Christmas, The Santa Clause, The Muppet Christmas Carol, A Charlie Brown Christmas, and A Christmas Story (several times) and more holiday movies are still on deck. My iPod is loaded with a plethora of Christmas tunes (and has been since Thanksgiving) and the crafty projects have been flying to completion.
All finished since the last time I blogged. A full quota of holiday spirit has been achieved. Also, latkes!
This is the best time of year. I love the short days and the long nights, the cold weather, the hustle-bustle, the gift giving, the believing in Santa, the anticipation, the corny holiday movies, the lavishly religious music. The latkes. I love all of it. This year, I offer as a special gift for the readers of Knitting Interrupted, a compilation of all the recipes I’ve posted here (I’m surprised there weren’t more, actually). So whether you celebrate Christmas or Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or Yule, or any of the other culturally significant (or otherwise) winter festivals, Happy Holidays!
