Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, Happy Solstice, and happy whatever else you celebrate! I hope you and yours are safe, healthy, and happy this holiday season and this year. :)

We've had a peaceful Christmas, although church last night was slightly exciting -- we have tall candle holders essentially on a stick that fits into notches on the ends of the pews. However, the person in front of me sat down a little hard a couple times and very, very nearly set the church on fire. It did succeed in pouring out quite a lot of wax quite suddenly, again, very nearly on me and the woman in front of me. We both had to scurry to move out of the way, so we were definitely wide awake for the rest of the service! It was not a quiet, subtle thing; I may or may not have shrieked a little, and the woman in front of me sprang to her feet. It was just as the priest was about to begin his sermon, and his only comment was to ask us to wait to burn the church down until the sermon was over, which made me laugh. We were also visited by a bat flying around quite excitedly. So, a lot going on!

We were also blessed to have an excellent singer doing some solos, which was just a pleasure. We have a very small church and we aren't often able to hire musicians. This is a video of him doing a song, also in my church, at another time. Youtube doesn't quite showcase him as well as it might, but it was honestly wonderful, and the acoustics in the church were beautiful. There's a long intro; he starts around the :30 mark if you want to have a listen. :)

Better update later, as I have to run and do family things now, but--omg, I have an ipod!

*wins at LIFE*

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, everyone! ♥♥
