Christmas Eve

Happy Christmas Eve.

May your holiday be all you wished for. May you remember the cause of this great season. May warm arms surround you and pull at the hem of your shirt. May little voices, be they barks, meows or squeals of delight, ring in your ears. May the lights shimmer long into the night, and the holiday drinks warm your throat as you sit, unable to shake the last of the smile from your lips.

Merry Christmas.


  1. Merry Christmas to you as well dear Chels, may it be warm and pleasant and may you wake up tomorrow with lots of lovely gifts underneath the Christmas tree :)

    People in my country celebrate Christmas on January 7th (Serbia is an Orthodox country), but I celebrate both ones, just for the atmosphere and the love you can feel in the air in this festive season.

    Love, Dezz

  2. What a wonderful toast, Michele. Thank you. I wish the same thing for you and your family. Happy Holidays.
