My Favorite Part

I think the time after Christmas is my favorite part of the season.

I love the time after the hunting, the gathering, the wrapping, the parties and good cheer.

I love the still after it’s all done. I love that I can leave the house a mess and not worry about what else should be done, whose coming, whose not . . .

I love that in a few days we will have a whole New Year and we all hope that this is going to be the year. . . the best year ever.  And I think back and wonder how can they get any better then this. . .  but somehow they do.
