It is December! Huzzah! Who else is looking forward for this year to be over with? *raises hand* –We are now in the homestretch with Christmas and New Years right around the corner. As longtime readers may know, I have a penchant for themes. In fact, as Christmas is now held at my house, my brother just inquired the other day, “So what’s the Christmas theme this year?”–He knows me so well!
This year’s theme was chosen by my mother last year from a short list: “Angels and Miracles.” As to why she picked this theme she admitted “It’d be a miracle if we survive the coming year.” A bit morbid, but all right. When I shared the theme with my brother he blurted out “Well, how the hell am I suppose to dress for that?!”–Oh, did I tell you? I sometimes dictate a dress code for my Christmas dinners. Not every year though! Goodness, what do you take me for?–So I instructed him to dress “angelic and miraculous”. He proceeded to roll his eyes.
