Day 3.348: Happy Christmas #4!
This is the fourth Christmas since the start of The Exile - although only our third spent here in the US. We spent the day in what have become traditional Christmas Eve activities. We had a snowy walk in the sun (or a sunny walk in the snow) this morning, and this evening we had our small gathering at church in which we retold the Christmas story in song and readings from the Bible and elsewhere. The kids got all dressed up for the occasion as you can see.
Earlier we fulfilled another tradition by making our video greeting. This year it is a recreation of the population of the Advent Calendar - and yes, although this was a recreation, there really was a cow lying in the manger for most of December.
Happy Christmas to all my readers, family, friends and strangers!
