Christmas Eve

My town sets out luminaries on Christmas Eve.  They are simple ----- brown paper bags, each with a pillar candle and some sand to keep the bag sturdy.  It's a lovely tradition; one that I enjoy because it is so simple.
When JT gets home from his other mom's house, we set out the bags.
Come twilight, we light the candles and then have a supper of snacks and appetizers.

Later tonight, we'll watch "A Christmas Story" and maybe play some games.  Santa will do his work in preparation for Christmas morning and then I will tuck into my flannel nest, grateful for blessings large and small.
I hope that you have some traditions to enjoy and some blessings to count.  Happy Christmas!
