Christmas 2013

Every year I look forward to the wonderful time that I have at Christmas. This year we were blessed with the presence of Richard Aaron, Beth's son. I had the happy fortune to watch Beth and her two sisters grow up and now I get to watch their children, but this time from a distance.

It is really wonderful having a place to go for dinner on the three big days of the year: Pascha [Easter], Christmas, and Thanksgiving. Ever since I returned back East from Texas, I have generally been invited to somebody's house for the big feasts. One year I ended up with three invitations on one day.
