Actually, it was a lovely Christmas, nothing miserable about it. Just a little out of the ordinary for me, and maybe that's partly because of Jerry's foot injury and my temporary hearing impairment, which actually was quite a bit better today.
James and Joan went with Jerry and me to see the movie version of Les Misérables. Today was the day the film opened. We liked it. Of course.
And then, rather than spend Christmas in the kitchen, we all went out for dinner with Jon and Tom. And gifts were relatively limited.
Less traditional, yes. Less stressful, definitely. I recommend it.
