Well, it's Christmas Eve. I was supposed to be back in New Mexico by now, but thanks to some miserable ice, I'm still in Gettysburg. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't upset about being stranded away from my family on Christmas Eve... but at the end of the day, Christmas is still Christmas even without the family and the traditions.
So Merry Christmas to you. And if you don't celebrate Christmas, then have a blessed Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Eid, or just happy winter.
