Happy Christmas Eve, everyone!
Only one day to go until the big day. Even though this year the big day is going to be a lot smaller.
Christmas in my family is a massive deal. We treat the day like a big family reunion of sorts. It’s often the only time I get to see certain members of my family.
This year, according to government guidelines, we are only having my maternal grandfather and paternal grandmother over for dinner. After they leave, my aunt and uncle will come over. We will have the windows open too for added ventilation.
At least I get to see some family, but it isn’t the same.
This is the first year we aren’t going to my uncle’s for brunch since my gran died. This tradition in a way let her remain a part of her favourite holiday, even when she wasn’t there.
In a way, I am almost dreading tomorrow. Christmas in my house is normally a loud but happy time. You can hear laughter and cheers from every room, glasses clinking near constantly as more drinks are being pored and cheesy Christmas songs blasting.
Yet the house will be so quiet this year. I am not ready for that.
Sorry for being so negative, on to something a bit more positive. Namely, my little tradition of Christmas thanks yous.
Biggest thank you in the world goes to Shiloh. Thank you so much for being there for me, even now. Even during a pandemic, you have been so understanding and kind. You are the best friend anyone could ask for.
To my Fateless players, thank you so much for the opportunity to DM for you. Your creativity and wit will never fail to amuse me. Even out of the game you guys have been there for me and in a way, I feel like we have grown closer, even if we have never been further apart physically since we met.
Thank you to OWLS and the blogging community overall for the tags and kind comments. It truly means a lot to be encouraged by such talented writers.
Last but certainly not least, thank you for reading. Yes, you! Thank you for reading my content. This little blog has grown a fair bit over what has been a dismal year. That is thanks to readers like you, so from the bottom of my heart, thank you!
However you celebrate, whatever you celebrate I hope you have a lovely time. I know it isn’t ideal but if we do the right thing this year, next year’s holiday season will be wonderful.
Merry Christmas and happy holidays!
