Christmas

...has been utterly low-key. We did presents while lighting the menorah and have avoided any discussion of why we don't celebrate Christmas by spending most of the day hiking at Devil's Den at the battlefields and sightseeing from the car in Gettysburg. All the adults napped for an hour while the kids were watching some movie or other. *g*

If I hadn't just seen the news, I would say that it was an utterly peaceful holiday. Now we are going to eat Swedish food and listen to music from Chelsea Junction, where my husband's uncle is head of the chamber of commerce and formerly ran a coffeehouse where all the classical and folk music types hung out.
