Merry Christmas

For obvious reasons, I don’t have a lot of time for blogging during the Advent and the Feast of Christmas. During the actual Christmas Season, from the 25th until January 6th or so, there’s a lot more time to be spent updating here and there.

But suffice it to say that despite the busyness, it was a marvelous time.

Here are a few things I learned this Christmas:

  • Making a reservation at the hotel where you’re going to be having dinner is ostensibly a great idea, until you forget to cancel the reservation and have to either pay for the room or stay in it.
  • There’s nothing wrong with staying in it, but it’s much more expensive than staying at one of your friend’s rectories.
  • It was very nice having a place in the city where friends could congregate and socialize. So, while I doubt I’ll be staying at the Roosevelt again anytime soon — if ever, even though it’s entirely lovely — it was a good way to spend Christmas night.

That’s about it for my social life. Now, back to my prayer life….
