Well, Christmas at Nogglestead, along with its various stresses, near-crises, and scandals, has passed.
We went to church on Christmas Eve–my beautiful wife and youngest son played trumpet for three of the services, but I only attended the three o’clock. In lieu of candles for the candlelight service–which would have required people to move their masks to blow out and to close the gap between families to light the candles–we got little battery-operated candle simulacra.
Which allowed me to re-enact a scene from one of my favorite Christmas movies, Lethal Weapon.
Come on, you know what I am talking about, ainna? I mean, I realize it’s an old movie, but:
Let it be noted, though, that Lethal Weapon 2 is not a Christmas movie.
And just so you know, I cannot recreate this scene on a normal year because it’s packed, and we don’t light the candles until right before singing “Silent Night”. Also, I am a sissy.
Thank you, that is all.
