On the First Day of Christmas...
Today was a wonderful day! We began our Christmas celebrations at 11pm last night with Matins followed by a midnight Liturgy and festal meal. It was wonderful and brought me back to my childhood! This morning was leisurely spent opening stockings, enjoying waffles, sausage, and hot cocoa, and opening presents. Father John scheduled Vespers at noon and then we came home for the little ones to nap and the preparations for our Christmas feast! I am happily exhausted! How was your Christmas?

"Happyly exhausted", describes my feelings also!
How lovely! What a glorious and special time this is.
I was at Christmas Eve liturgy too and it was full of joy...
