Merry Christmas World-2017

So, I wrote the first draft of this in the post-present, pre-movie lull. We went to see The Greatest Showman with Hugh Jackman and, I must admit, enjoyed it quite a bit.

I had a good holiday this year. Christmas 2016 sucked, big time. Long story short, we found out bad news five days before, on the 20th and there went all sense of fun or joy. Not this year. I’ve been listening to David Seders’ Theft By Finding, a collection of diary entries. He’s not one to do deep dives into his psyche or soul, but his observations of people and events never disappoints and could provide fodder for several writers. One thing he does every year was list his Christmas presents. I got to thinking about it. How many of us can list what we got five years ago? I can’t, so I’m stealing this tradition from him.

For Christmas 2017 I got:

  • $25.00 Chili’s card
  • Red down vest
  • Purple cardigan sweater
  • 2 pairs of gloves
  • 5 pairs of socks
  • 1 hat/scarf/glove set
  • 1box of colored pencils
  • 1 bag of red pens
  • 1 long sleeved blue t-shirt
  • 1 pair of warm socks
  • 1 lapboard desk
  • 1 Love the Journey 2018 calendar
