Christmas Eve sleep by the tree.

We also were able to find a live broadcast of the King's College Cambridge's Christmas Eve Festival of Nine Lessons. It was so cool to hear familiar and not so familiar Christmas carols, and scripture readings, all done very well. The boys choir there is wonderful. And I really enjoy this service. Michael Barone, the host of the broadcast on NPR, described the sunset coming through the stained glass windows as the service finished up. It made you feel like you were there. I would love to add this to our traditions list. We started our Christmas Eve with King's College, and ended it with Charlie Brown's Christmas, with Prairie Home Companion sandwiched somewhere between. And a monopoly game that I lost, and Ethan won, with Brian Marcus and Brian coming in second and third respectively.
Well, Merry Christmas to all my faithful readers. May this 2011 Christmas be in your Top 10.
I know its in mine...
