Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

24 Dec

ORNAMENT

This year, like all years, I am very grateful to be able to spend another Christmas with my loved ones. Through the years, I’ve learned to cherish each Christmas because those moments with your nearest and dearest are the ones you never forget. I am Latin American; we have a special tradition derived from the Spanish of celebrating on Christmas eve. So, all our partying occurs on Christmas Eve or as we call it in Spanish “Nochebuena”, which translates into the good night. Indeed, all the yummy food makes it one of the best nights of the year! So wherever you are and whether you celebrate Nochebuena or you celebrate Christmas day: “have yourself a merry little Christmas.” To my friends who don’t celebrate Christmas be grateful you don’t have to deal with all the stressful Christmas shopping!

Anyway, on to the subject of this blog. Knitting! Yes, the stress of life gets in the way of knitting and my knitting hits bumps. Still, I knit a little almost everyday. But my Christmas knitting has been abysmal. I just haven’t had time to finish everything. Some gifts I totally gave up on and just bought something for the recipient. However, I am proud of some Christmas gifts, my favorites of which I will share when the recipients get them!
