Christmas. Not only is it the highlight of the year amongst the kids, I am just as crazy about it. But when the little ones puts equal signs between Christmas and presents, I treasure the moments of family gatherings, a big bird in the oven, good wines and just a sense of, although perhaps instantaneous, a trouble-free world. Guess I’m getting old…
Sadly, our eldest daughter has come up with the bad idea that Christmas is all about becoming sick. Crossing fingers this year would see a break in the statistics, were spoilt on the 22nd. So, instead of her first Christmas eve fully aware of Santa’s existence (you know what I mean), she was quite uninterested when he entered the living room. I guess most of us wouldn’t give a d-mn about a white-bearded old man, despite a bag full of presents, if we had 40,5 C?
Being a worried soul means sitting up keeping an eye on the little one and knowing exactly when it’s time for yet an antifebrile. Ergo, no Christmas port, no good glass of wine, no real time for enjoying the food. But, the single beer I had for Christmas was probably one of the best I’ve had for years. Man, did I enjoy my Mikkeller Santa’s Little Helper 2010! Belgian-styled beer packed with Christmas spiciness. Thanks to the 9,1% it lasted an eternity!
|Probably the best beer in the world!|
So, in a moment when feeling good, the kids got a bunch of presents and for just a little while everything was just as we all hoped for Christmas! Best of 2010 are on its way. Until then, enjoy the holidays and thank you so much for reading my blogs. It means a lot to me!
