A Merry Christmas


Bee and I had a quiet day in. Just the two of us.

It's like any other ordinary day at home for us. No Christmas tree, no turkey for dinner, no hanging of mistletoe.

There wasn't much drive to put up decorations or host a Christmas dinner since we were lazy the house hasn't been renovated yet. Instead, we ordered in and snuggled up in bed like two lazy beavers, wiggling our toes to "Go, Tell It on the Mountain".

We didn't even exchange presents this year. My chronic procrastination has gotten so bad that I procrastinated on picking out Christmas presents. @_@ I console myself by thinking that I'm trying to preserve the spirit of Christmas by prolonging the anticipation. Haha.

Last year, when I spent Christmas alone in Melbourne, Bee and I promised each other a white Christmas. The proper way a Christmas should be, he said.

Alas, no thanks to my dwindling bank account and indecisiveness, our much anticipated winter shopping trip to the US of A and Europe has to be postponed. So, no white Christmas for us again.

But this year, Bee and I are together. And married! It's our first Christmas as husband and wife.

If home is where the heart is, then I'm finally home.

And THAT, is how a Christmas should be.

Merry Christmas, baby.

The Christmas Song
Nat King Cole

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
Jack Frost nipping on your nose
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir
And folks dressed up like Eskimos

Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe
Help to make the season bright
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow
Will find it hard to sleep tonight

They know that Santa's on his way
He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh
And every mother's child is going to spy
To see if reindeer really know how to fly

And so I'm offering this simple phrase
To kids from one to ninety-two
Although its been said many times, many ways
A very Merry Christmas to you

As the end of 2008 is drawing near,
Gone are Santa and his reindeers,
And we all switch to high gears,
To celebrate the countdown of the coming year.

I want to let you know you’re a great blogger,
So much so that I’ve made myself your Follower,
It does not matter whether you are far or near,
You’ve brought me much laughters and tears.

So before you get drunk with that last glass of beer,
Waiting for 2009 to appear,
Let me wish you now and here,
A very happy & smashing new year!!

: )

Happy New Year to you and your bee!

Doreen said...

Wishing you and your family a great 2009. All the best!

MisSmall said...

Petite Lass: Thanks, hun. For the whole time Mr T and I have been going out, this is our second Christmas being physically together. So yes, it was a very good Christmas indeed. :)

Sab: One of the major downsides of living on this side of the globe is having to celebrate Christmas in scorching hot weather. There's just something very wrong with that. :/

Doreen: I guess we're really starting to enjoy quiet time at home more and more. I wonder if it's a sign of growing old. >_<

MisSmall said...

Josephine: There's no need to be envious, gal. Like I've said, this is only our second Christmas being physically together in nearly 5 years. And I have a feeling that come next Christmas, Mr T and I will most likely be in different countries again. So it'll be my turn to envy you and your dear. :)

Emotionalistic: There's no place like home yeah? :)

Lila: A (very) belated merry Christmas to you too, darl. :)

MisSmall said...

Fuzkittie: You're most welcome, hun. :D

Xin: Indeed. Indeed. :)

Sdovelly: Hope you had a great time, gal. Christmas is all about family and friends, isn't it? :)

MisSmall said...

Foongpc: Wow, now THAT is a sweet message. Thanks heaps! Hope you had a good one too. :)

Renaye: Well said, hun. You're right, the best gift is, indeed, having each other. :)

Cbenc12: We had a quite NYE too. Happy belated new year to you too, gal. :)
