The other day a group visited us. They came in stealthily like thieves. Two members of the group rushed in to the bedroom. After a few minutes one of them emerged dressed up as the Santa. My little one was scared. They sang in their softest voice without any musical accompaniment. The Santa hurried to the bedroom to regain his normal looks. Silent wishes. They were gone. And that is how carols come here.
My girls didn’t even realize what was happening. How could they, who have never in their life seen or celebrated the real Christmas?
One more Christmas behind closed doors. No illuminations. No paper stars. No midnight mass. No crackers. No guests. But yes, there is a gloomy Christmas tree on our TV stand – to remind us “so this is Christmas”. Now and then my husband plays some Christmas songs to create the mood of Christmas. But I don’t think it was of any use.
And tomorrow I am not going to school, just because my dear ones will be at home. Restricted holiday – for the Christian staff. But I am availing it for the first time. So what shall we do tomorrow? Early morning there will be a decent breakfast of ‘appam’ and curry. Of course, there will be a cake. For lunch we are planning some fried rice and some dessert. We shall christen the day ‘Christmas’. We shall be all alone.
Don’t ask me – “So this is Christmas, and what have you done?” Not the right kind of post for such an auspicious day, I know. But this is the reality.
But you must have a great time! HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO ALL MY DEAR BLOGGER FRIENDS!
Be happy! Keep smiling!
