Merry Christmas!

    Merry Christmas!

    I had to laugh … the weight is so far in the other direction in our house that my youngest was nearly reduced to tears by four older siblings agreeing that Christmas presents should be opened at noon. He was MOSTLY sure they were teasing, given that three of them were planning to attend 8 AM Mass, including an altar server and an organist. But still, what if they weren’t? What if they meant it? What if he had to wait until… noon?
