Me and my two older sibs Christmas Eve
Hey Tek-ninjas! Do you remember when you were children? I am remembering when I was a child, and the joy and excitement that the Christmas Holiday brought to me and my family.  When we didn't travel, we stayed at home in Hampton, VA.  We would have a big Christmas eve dinner. Some times we'd go to Catholic Mass, a left over tradition from my mother's Catholicism. In later years we attended Quaker meeting for worship. My family typically opened presents Christmas Eve, late. My mother and I always went for a walk in the wee hours of the morning. I remember those walks as being very special.

It's Christmas Eve, and now I'm at home in Chapel Hill with my wife and two boys. Tomorrow morning we will head north to Richmond to see my extended family. I am missing my mother who passed 7 years ago, and my brother who passed this summer. I am loving my family, and finding joy in the season.

I hope you and yours are finding joy this season as well. 

Merry Christmas to those of you who celebrate, and a Happy Hanukkah if this is your tradition. Peace and Love to you all.
