Holiday celebrations

So Friday night we went to a party sponsored by Drew's sister's union. There was a program about all the different celebrations held this time of year -- Christmas, Three Kings Day, Chanukah, Kwanzaa. They also recognized the Muslim Eids, although neither of those celebrations take place in December this year. Lots of food and good cheer.

Saturday night was community theater time. Our local Gilbert & Sullivan group does a version of "A Christmas Carol", marrying the Dickens classic story with some of Sullivan's best music, including tunes recycled from "The Mikado", "H.M.S. Pinafore" and "Pirates of Penzance". A fun way to spend an evening.

Sunday we went to the movies. We like to see classic movies at the movie theater, even if we've seen them so often on TV that we can recite dialogue by heart. You see things in a movie theater that you might have missed on TV. Our choice Sunday was "White Christmas" starring Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye.

And New Year's Eve is starting to come together...

So maybe I am starting to feel the holiday spirit ...
