Nollaig chridheil agus Bliadhna mhath ùr!
Wesolych Swiat Bozego Narodzenia or Boze Narodzenie
However you say it, it’s almost here. Tonight lots of little children will be working hard to stay awake and parents will be working equally as hard to get them to sleep.
Being part of a larger family there are a lot of happy Christmases in my past. I am very blessed that a lot of the family is local and my siblings and their families, along with our parents, still meet for an annual Christmas brunch. We’ve outgrown some of our homes as we number over 40 people these days, so I’m grateful to my brother and his wife (with the biggest house) for hosting AGAIN this year. It is a joyous time of renewal for all of us.
When I was thinking about what to write today, I realized that I didn’t really need to write anything. Most of us will be busy wrapping those final packages, visiting with friends, baking that last batch of cookies, and going to services. So I’ll keep this short and simply wish you the merriest of Christmases from all of us here at Over The Backyard Fence. May you get everything you wished for.
