Hope everyone had a happy Christmas, or is still having it–we put our decorations up late and keep them up through Jan. 6, “twelfth night.” Today is Boxing Day in Canada and the UK, the day when “Good King Wenceslaus looked out on the Feast of Stephen.” A bit of the fun of Anglicanism is getting to know that kind of stuff. Or, you could just look it up on wikipedia (as long as you don’t use it as a source in your research paper).
My dad and I picked up a few goodies at Trader Joe’s (we are fans), then we said farewell for now and he went home to South Carolina. I’m enjoying a quiet afternoon. Maybe tomorrow will brave some stores armed with gift-cards.
Movies I’ve seen during the holidays (so far):
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (on DVD)
Lars and the Real Girl
National Treasure: Book of Secrets
Speaking of movies, Ken Morefield recently posted his top 10 movies of 2007 on his new website.
