A Few Of My Favorite Things

Who doesn’t love The Sound Of Music? I’ve been watching it ever since I can remember and whenever it’s on I watch it. Christmas time is a great time to watch it again. April loves the movie too and we have the 25th anniversary edition on Blu-Ray. We watched it last night and it got me thinking and singing about my favorite things. None of the things in the song actually found their way onto my list but that’s okay. I’m not Julie Andrews.

These are a few of my favorite things:

1. People. I love children and I want three of my own. April said, “What?”
2. A great science fiction or horror movie that doesn’t involve the occult. They are very rare.
3. Good food and good wine and great friends.
4. Scenic photography, especially ice shelves, snow covered mountains at sundown, beach sunsets, National Parks, astronomy (mainly nebula), and
5. The clean way a woman smells without any perfume, lipstick, nail polish, hair spray, shampoo or deodorant. Just the smell of a clean woman.

Christmas Traditions

April and I don’t have any traditional Christmas rituals because circumstances have usually had us apart during the Christmas holidays. Being newly married we want to start some traditions of our own. Something separate from what both of our families did.

My family was able to open one gift on Christmas Eve just before going to bed. I also found myself every year with my friends and my sister’s friends watching Christmas Vacation some time during the week of Christmas.

In April’s family, they sang carols on Christmas Eve, had a huge Christmas dinner with everybody in the family and just about the whole neighborhood dropping in for at least a bite of something. Then after Christmas dinner, they opened their gifts. Great traditions all, but we want to be different. We’re in a new town, we’re newly- weds and we want to make our own, new traditions. But what?

For those who celebrate Christmas, what are some of your family traditions. If you don’t mind sharing, perhaps they can become ours too.

Please share and Merry Christmas to one and all.
