Emily was feeling kinda lonely, and got stuck by herself with the "old people" on Christmas afternoon and evening.
Things we did (in addition to eating, exchanging gifts, listening to Christmas music in the background, and enoying one another's company):
We burned some 40 year old candles from my mother's house. It took all day. My siblings had some similar candles and had agreed to do the same.
We played Russian rummy and nertz.
And even burned a Yule (sort of) log. We had to start the fire early since the temps got into the high 60s or 70s on Christmas Day:
We hope you had a Merry Christmas!
