It’s Christmas Eve! It’s Christmas Eve! Forget what I said yesterday. I AM psyched! So is Jude–he woke up at seven am after a night of little, interrupted sleep. When I told him he needed more rest, he said:
“I sorry. I excited about Santa.”
After two nights of wrapping and going to bed way too late, I was grateful that I didn’t have to stay up with him and could go back to bed for an hour or so.
And now, I am the only well-rested person in my family, and I am READY for the family/food/presents/superfun marathon to commence. The Eve has always been a big event for us, and I love passing it all on to Jude, even more so now that he’s aware of the festivities.
Tonight at eight pm is also the start of another tradition: a twenty-four hour stream of A Christmas Story on TBS.
This part (like so many others) gets me every time. I think it’s what most of my students think when they submit a paper:
Happy Christmas Eve, everyone!! Hope it’s merry!!!
