Colleen’s challenge this week was to write a cinquain reflecting our Christmas traditions. A tree with lights, music, cooking (especially those cookies!) and watching “Love Actually”–my daughters and I were lucky enough to share all these again this year.

I hope everyone separated from family and friends for this holiday season will be able to celebrate being together soon.

    I’m so happy you got to be with your daughters to share some Christmas love. My husband and I watched Love Actually, too. 😏

      Thanks Merril. I’m not sure when we started watching it every Christmas, but I see new things each time. This was a good Christmas, and I’m glad we worked it out. New Years will be a family video call, with uncles aunts and cousins.

    A lovely little poem about the simple joys this Christmas has made us more aware of.

    It sounds as though you recreated all the memorable bits of Christmas.
    It was…different here. And we watched Matrix (youngest daughter’s choice). I wasn’t allowed to inflict The Sound of Music on them as usual.
