Default Festive Lighting - Before and After

Two pictures from Christmas day.

Christmas morning:



Christmas evening:



The second picture was taken by my other half as I was watching a movie. Am I ever glad he spotted how pretty the lighting was, I really like his picture much better than mine from the morning.

Isn't that sad? So much preparation and all the excitement is gone in a few hours.

Beautiful tree, I like both versions. They tell a story nicely.

The tree is all the work of my sister, she did a wonderful job with it this year.

Ah, but the memories remain forever. In the future whenever I wonder why I'm going through the agony of wrapping gifts (cut the paper an inch too short, the ribbon doesn't match, the bow doesn't stick on) I'll remember this Christmas. The dinner was excellent, it was great fun watching my 20-something niece and her significant other unwrapping kitchen items and being excited about them, and then watching my 90-something mother getting just as big of a kick out of unwrapping her gifts. Well worth the hours of chopping/dicing food, polishing serving dishes, digging out the "good stuff" from the bottom of a cupboard - in fact, this year was priceless!

It sounds like it was a very special Christmas. The funny thing is, we go through the same preparation exercise, making sure all presents are nicely wrapped, the house is fully decorated, etc., etc., etc. I just love the Christmas season!
