Home for the Holidays: Wise Owl Edition

Merry Christmas y'all! My house is currently being filled with the smell of some delicious food, Bebop is sleeping next to me and everything is very calm. Calm is what you need before spending an afternoon with your family. And drinks, drinks are what you need during and after.

What a magical day though. As children it's the most wonderful day of the year but as we get older, it becomes something different. The magic is still there, but somehow it's faded. Maybe that's just the reality of aging. But there's that moment, usually at night, when you catch the twinkle of the lights on the tree, the flicker of the fire, when you truly know the advent of the season has arrived and you want to stay in that moment forever. That's really what today is about. So here's hoping you find that moment today, and that you try to stay in it as long as you can.
