Just before Christmas comes, when all the wrapping is done, all the Christmas quilts have their binding already sewn on, and all the food is in the frig just waiting to be put in the oven..... you can capture a glimpse of the Christmas Calm.
In my house....we are not quite there yet.
Some years, our Christmas Calm last for about 30 seconds. Other years it might be as long as 24 hrs.
I've got a little (ahem) wrapping still to do, and a teenie bit of shopping still pending.
I'm here hoping that my own Christmas Calm is longer than 30 seconds, and that yours is at least more than a whole day.
