These last few years, Christmas has never been a big priority for me. I usually bring in a branch that fell off someone else's tree, and I might buy a box of mandarin oranges, and I go to Regina for a weekend. That's about it.
Yesterday, though, it was almost as if my heart grew three sizes too big. For the very first time ever: I've put up Christmas lights!
Truly, my cup of eggnog runneth over.
