A Christmas Miracle

Each year, from roughly the day after Thanksgiving to Christmas Eve, our house is converted into an insane asylum.

Between the planning, gift shopping, wrapping, decorating, cooking, and entertaining, for about a month our ordinary lives are shoved aside while our days become filled with a frenzy of hyperactivity. Invariably, my diet and exercise routines go out the window. Even the dogs, perhaps sensing the heightened  stress levels, are more irritable than usual.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Then, suddenly, it all comes to a screeching halt on Christmas Day.

Families are reunited. Feasts are enjoyed. Gifts are unwrapped. And, if only for a few hours, peace reigns on earth. Each year, we are rewarded with this Christmas miracle.

So from my family to yours, with heartfelt gratitude for reading and supporting my blog, and with every good wish for a happy and safe holiday, I wish you a miraculous Christmas and a happy New Year!

A programming note: This is my 100th blog post since launching Budget Cooking Blog last August. Hurray! I will be taking the next week off to recharge my batteries and will begin posting the next 100 blogs after the New Year.
