Christmas Special (2017) Writing Prompt #24

Welcome to Our Random View’s Christmas Special Writing Prompts.  Today’s theme – The Night Before Christmas? (https://ourrandomview.wordpress.com/2017/12/24/christmas-special-2017-writing-prompt-24-the-night-before-christmas/)

Do we do anything special the day or night before Christmas?  Not so much anymore.  I usually clean the house for Christmas guests, and Kevin goes Christmas shopping.   Yes, every December 24th, he is in the stores until they close.  As for Christmas Eve, we used to do church (I would always sing O Holy Night at the service) and have dinner with Kevin’s family, but those days are long over.  Now, it’s watching Christmas movies, and having a nice relaxed dinner.

Hope you all are enjoying your Christmas Eve!

What could be better than Christmas dinner with family and friends, watching a movie (one Christmas I introduced Dad to This is Spinal Tap), listening to Christmas music, and of course, eating stuffing!  I’m looking forward to this year’s stuffing…I mean, family dinner 🙂

Winter wonderland, man.  No snow in the city though, and this is probably all gone now.  That’s the kind of winter I’m ok with!

Ok, first of all I need to ask:  is a Christmas carol the same as a Christmas song?  Is the next prompt going to be what is my favourite Christmas song???  Well, at the risk of having to give the same answer twice:

(Disclaimer…my answer changes day to day…this is today’s response!)
