Happy to report a peaceful Christmas Eve that started with a lovely vigil Mass at our parish, then the decoration of our humble tabletop fake tree, followed by a dinner of home-baked milk rolls, arroz caldo, and a tankard of coquito.
No photos. I leave my phone in the car for Mass these days, preferring not to look for the next cool shot to share from church. And I’m increasingly content to relegate the phone to Spotify duty at home. Sometimes it’s just tiring to strive for an Instagrammable holiday. Glad to take a break from it right now.
