Merry Christmas!

As we celebrate Christmas in our house and parish, our prayers go out to our fellow Catholics on the other side of the world. Click here for some Christmas Day reading on evolving Chinese practices when it comes to celebrating Christmas. And, from the archives, read the last paragraph of this for our first-hand encounter with incomprehensible mish-mash that is Christmas in a predominantly non-Christian country.

Blue Underfoot

When I work at home, it seems as if the entire day is spent with Blue nuzzling under my feet, always trying to retain even the tiniest bit of physical contact between the two of us. And so it really tickled me to see this little scene unfold as we were decorating our Christmas tree the other day...

O Christmas Tree

I posted a while back (years ago, in fact) about how I am slowly but surely losing my control over the grill (a defining characteristic of manhood). Well, you can now add to the list my waning influence over picking out and setting up the Christmas tree. Good job, Z!
