'Twas the Day After Christmas

  It's really the same thing every year, for months I look forward to Christmas with an enthusiasm that can't truly be explained. I put all of my time and energy into creating festive things, from Christmas ornaments, to gifts, to cookies, and various treats. Then, on Christmas Eve I am a-twitter with excitement. The following day is much like a passing dream and then it's all over. Nothing can express the sorrow that seems to flood me throughout the week after Christmas.

  Usually I spend my week after Christmas doing nothing but mourning for the holidays of my past while staring dismally at the ghost of Christmas that lingers everywhere, like scraps of wrapping paper, leftover treats, the empty tree, and everything else that has faded in some way or another.

  But this week after Christmas I was surprised and still am as each day that greets me is actually fresh and full of delightful activities (minus having to do Geometry of course). I wanted to let you guys see what my day after Christmas was like so I shall compose a list. And just in case you are wondering, no, I did not not spend the day after Christmas in my pj's, having a LOTR marathon whilst munching on leftovers. Not that I'd frown upon those of us who have done just that though.

My Day After Christmas

I spent hours reading a book.

I began planning a high tea party.

I got to work on finishing a crocheted lace table runner that I want for my tea party.

I got most of my New Year's goals written down and dreamed over.

I ate part of my mini gingerbread house (it's actually made of graham crackers.)

I read my old diaries.

I poetically daydreamed over my gifts.

And lastly I had a chocolate from a box of delightful things a friend had given to me.

After Christmas fun, is so much better than after Christmas blues!


  1. That sounds like a lovely way to spend the day (or days) after Christmas! I love relaxing, looking through the beautiful gifts I received, and watching family friendly Christmas movies on TV! "Christmas fun" sounds a lot better than "Christmas blues"! Glad you are enjoying all aspects of Christmas!!! :)

  2. Oh how I love Christmas..I look forward to it all year and enjoy all the prep for it....but it seems to pass in a flash. I am already thinking about next year...whilst still watching Christmas movies! I love how you are coping. What a great way to spend your day...And just think...we are one day closer to next Christmas x
