Clump #126: Get the luminaries set out.
Another kind of a party took place this morning when most of our neighborhood gathered for the annual Christmas Eve setting out of luminaries. I had gotten the bags and candles … I thought we had enough sand, but needed to make a last-minute trip to the hardware store for more. Cookies and hot chocolate fortified the troops (left-over cookies from last night’s ladies’ soiree).
My older daughter, a dear friend, and I escaped the Christmas Eve to-do lists to visit Bedford Falls by way of the movie, It’s a Wonderful Life, at a theater.
By the time we got back, we discovered that the luminaries had been magically lit.
In the words of the angel Clarence, “Remember, George: no man is a failure who has friends.”
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
