boxing day

I've always been rather fond of Boxing Day -- it's like Christmas Day's laid-back, somewhat slightly-stoned little brother.  The feeling of celebration still lingers, but in a quieter, calmer way.

As soon as I post this, I'll go to the kitchen to make some banana bread to take over to my mother's house tomorrow (my sister and her family arrive late tonight), while Marcus and Alex continue their pick-up game of croquet in our entryway (one of Alex's Christmas gifts).  And later this afternoon, good friends will come over for some leftover Christmas dinner.

I hope your holiday continues as warmly and peacefully.
