Merry Christmas!

Christmas presents for everybody being late and having eaten into much of the time for preparing for Christmas in other ways, I finally finished decorating the house this morning (Christmas Day itself). We have only five strings of tinsel, a relic from living in a smaller house, and two of them are on the tree; and so I went into the garden yesterday and ripped out piles of ivy. So the house is decorated with much greenery in a very traditional-looking manner. I’m pleased with it, at least.
