Well its not quite night in Boston just yet, but it will be before I realize it. Today will be spent running errands and getting my home ready for friends who will stop by this evening. This is a tradition Sergio and I started a few years back when we realized we had friends who would not be going home for Christmas. We dubbed it an orphans Christmas Eve and each year host this relaxing get together.
Sadly, this year I’m hosting the party without Sergio. His father has been quite ill and he was able to head back to Brazil to be with his family. While I’m happy he can be there, his absence is something I can’t quite get past and so I look forward to having a few friends here to keep me company.
I’d like to wish you a Merry Christmas. For those who don’t celebrate the holiday, I’d still like to say “good tidings we bring” as the song’s lyrics say. I’m not 100% certain what “tidings” are but it sure sounds nice.
