Christmas Eve

Christmas means different things to different people… some mark the birth of Christ, others the solstice, for some it’s just another public holiday, for many it’s a chance to spend up big on presents, max out the credit card.

I fall into the camp of using the day to get together with family, to give them all presents, eat way too much food (and yet have plenty of leftovers), and via Christmas cards (paper or electronic) I drop a line to those friends I don’t see very often (as well as those I see all the time).

For me this Christmas is special — my sister and her husband have returned from years of living away from home, to settle back in Melbourne.

They brought the news with them that I’m going to be an uncle.

Whatever Christmas means to you, hope you have a good one.

Congratulations to you, I love being an Uncle. Merry Christmas to you and your family,friends and to everyone here.

oh congratulations on your uncle-ness! I am happy for you having your sister back, with 3 out of four of my siblings in NZ, most of my nephews and my only niece live there and it is emotionally hard at times, not being close to them.

I do hope you and yours have a lovely christmas :o)
