Our evening meal was melon and gravadlax, followed by roast pork and home grown veg, and Christmas pudding. My parents went home about 8pm so we had some time alone to just relax and watch some comedy on iPlayer, and open some presents we'd kept over.
Not what most people would consider a 'traditonal Christmas Day' - we didn't overeat or drink very much; we didn't have a big pile of presents, just a few. We didn't go to church because we don't any more - and why go at Christmas when you don't go the rest of the year?
Best present for 2010: a pair of Grivel Spiders from Mr H. These are like mini-crampons which fit in the instep of your boots for walking on snow or ice. Having them meant that the three of us could go out for a lovely walk on the Forest today, where normally I would fear to tread...
If God isn't out here as well as in church, then something's definitely wrong.
