Merry Christmas everyone!
Well, here we are at yet another Christmas.
This is a special Christmas for me because it is the first time in years that I haven't had to work Christmas Day.
I cannot remember the last time I didn't work Christmas Day. I have to tell you it's sort of nice. In fact it is VERY nice.
Bill and I will spend a quiet day here at Casa Tipton-Kelly, which is just the way we like it. You could say we're spending Christmas the way you would expect two old (very old) gay men to spend Christmas Day, alone sans the kids and family. Which is just fine with us. Not that we have anything against those who want to fill their Christmas Day with screaming little
|Hillbilly Christmas Dinner - the kind I USED to attend|
Most of all we don't need the Christmas present exchange. Hey, Christmas presents are fine for those who want to do it but we got out of that Christmas Trap years ago. I send Christmas cards, which I enjoy doing very much, but that activity in addition to stringing up a couple of strands of colorful lights over the fireplace is as far as we go for celebrating Christmas.
I discovered years ago the best thing about Christmas for the both of us is just being together and enjoying the peace and quiet.
Peace, after all isn't that what Christmas is all about?
Merry Christmas everyone and a very happy and HEALTHY New Year!
