This is a good thing, a beautiful thing even, for it means that many are spending time focusing on the holidays and taking a much needed breather - if only for a day or two - from the web. It's not going anywhere, but before we can blink the holidays will be over again, so it's worth enjoying a momentary pause in the name of Christmas this week.
Of course I'm not saying that you shouldn't post today or tomorrow, by all means do so, if you like, I'm just remarking on how I always sense a very brief lull in the general amount of blogging activity in general between about the 22nd and 27th of December (and then to a lesser extent right around, and on, New Year's Day). I won't be posting tomorrow myself either, but will be back bright and early on Boxing Day morn.
Like many, I adore, cherish and revere Christmas. Its bright-eyed wonder, hopeful promises, and gentle elegance is unlike any other time of the year. I've had a terrific December, full of all the very best things that the month of Christmas should contain, and am excited beyond words to celebrate tomorrow with my nearest and dearest.
It is my wish to all of you, wherever in this vast, amazing world of ours that you live, that tomorrow abounds with joy and good cheer, laughter and merriment, gifts both of the heart and of the kind that come wrapped in a pretty bow, more food than you could ever begin to eat in one sitting, hugs from those you see rarely, smiles shared under the glistening holiday lights, a childlike sense of wonder, old memories to reminisce about and new ones to recall fondly for the rest of your days.
And, if only in spirit, as Bing first sung all the years ago, may all your Christmases be white.
Merry Christmas wishes and love, everybody!
