I'm so far behind the curve this season. No tree up. No stockings hung. No cards mailed. No shopping done. Knitted presents? Ha! Just so you don't think the next words to come out of my mouth are going to be Bah-humbug...last night I took a candlelight stroll in a nearby outdoor shopping district. I did no actual shopping, just the window kind. Tiny tea lights illuminated the sidewalks and carolers were out and about, resplendent in Dickensian garb. Ignoring the blatant commercialism that this season has become, I simply enjoyed a quiet evening stroll on a crisp night in a glittery atmosphere and ate a warm chocolate chip cookie...the little pleasures of the season.
