Aaaaaand, it’s over. Just like that.
So much buildup, so much shopping, decorating, baking, wrapping, and now, we’re done. Happens every year.
But, I hope yesterday was lots of fun for you. It was for me.
Now, it’s time to go return all those gifts you said were “just what you’ve always wanted!” It’s also time for another post-Christmas tradition that, I believe, is rapidly dying out:
Writing, and sending, thank-you notes.
That’s right, kids, back in ye olden days, we wrote thank-you notes to everyone who gave us a present for Christmas, including Santa.
I don’t know, do kids do that anymore? Writing, I mean? On paper? With a pen?
Who knows? Anyway…
Here’s my chance to send a thank-you note to you. All of you wonderful people who gave me the gift of your attention this year, even if it was just to look in on one post. Just the fact that you took the time to visit this blog means a lot to me, so thank you for checking in to see what I wrote. I hope you enjoyed your visit, and you’re welcome to come back anytime, as often as you want. I will try to keep making it worth it for you.
We have, to understate, a very interesting year ahead, and we all need to gear up for it. The incoming administration is going to require our constant vigilance, and participation in the process of governing this nation.
If you can’t come up with any New Year’s resolution, I think that would be as good as any.
Again, thanks so much for stopping by. I appreciate it. Y’all come back now, you hear?
