Christmas Eve

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that Saint Nicholas soon would be there.

Stockings (= any available present receptacle) hung in the hallway haphazardly

Well, Christmas Eve this year sure wasn’t a silent one (it was the windiest night all year!), nor do I live in a house.  My stocking was hung from a clothesline in the building hallway, and I’m at the point in my life where St. Nick is yours truly.

I came back early from a Christmas Eve gathering and had some time to think and reflect over this season, which isn’t about any of that.  It was nice to enjoy the silence, in spite of the wind, and the glow of the Christmas lights.  On a funny note, I replaced the tree lights on three separate occasions and this is what was left by Christmas!
