Merry Christmas Everyone

It was a quiet evening here. Everything seems to be in place for tomorrow. It will become very busy and hectic early, but tonight we are enjoying calm and quiet!

Another evening of watching Christmas movies like "White Christmas", "Holiday Inn", "Miracle on 34th St.", "It's a Wonderful Life" and of course " A Christmas Carol".

We are back from attending Midnight Mass at St. Mary's in Elgin. The church dates back to the late 1800's. It's in an area that has many beautiful old house build around that same time. It's a tradition that just before the Mass is over the lights in church are turned off, with only the soft glow of the lighted trees and nativity cast light, while the congregation and choir sings "Silent Night".

Wishing all my family and friends the Merriest Christmas. Enjoy the moments in anyway possible. It's the moments that are important not the things.

I hope to share some photos of the gathering tomorrow.
