The Sunday After Christmas


Do this in remembrance of me.

Christmas was on a friday and we had plans for a traditional Christmas Service beginning at 11:00 PM with carols and music and ending after a Eucharist just after midnight - Christmas morning. There would be cookies and treats afterward with coffee, or punch and noisey greetings of Merry Christmas.

However, we had 8 inches of snow on top of ice last night and Father Rick prudently cancelled the service. So like the practical folks we are we sang our carols this morning and enjoyed the cookies after church. The roads were still bad in some places but we had a hardy few who showed up ready to sing and had a fine time. The music was fine, or at least enthusiastic, and a most joyful noise was raised.

Afterward Susan and I went to the Olive Garden for a nice lunch in recognition that today is our 7th anniversary. Truthfully, I think we have come to love each other even more as time has gone by.

Happy anniversary! I was surprised to hear about all the snow in Oklahoma. Our church service was cancelled last Sunday due to snow but it's gone now so it's nice to see your pictures.

Happy Anniversary Bill.

Our church cancelled both the Christmas Eve and following Sunday sevices. It still doesn't seem quite like Christmas without that.

Happy Anniversary - all the way from Norway :-)

You have seen we have quite a lot in Oslo, Norway and now we are 4 hours drive west off in Mariestad, Sweden and its the same here. Truly a White Christmas lasting long into the new year.
