The Annual Heal Christmas Party

Every year since I can remember, I've had a Christmas party.  It started when I was growing up, my parents hosted a neighbourhood sing a long.  Dad played on the organ, Mr. Lenord played the piano.  The neighbours came and sang songs, drank the punch, brought Christmas treats and everyone got into the festive season.

A few years after I moved out,  one Christmas I brought all my friends back to my parents house, Dad played the organ, Mom had out treats and we all sang the same carols that I did as a kid.

When Chris and I moved in together, our first Christmas was also as new home owners, so of course, the Heal Christmas party began.  This year we continued on for our 11th.

It was a quiet year.  A lot of other events seemed to be happening and took some of our regulars to other places that night.  But while I missed seeing some, I still enjoyed visiting with others.  Sure, I kinda wish I had an organ and piano in my living room cuz I can sing a mean Rudolph....but I really enjoy celebrating the season with friends and family.

This was a weekend packed with Christmas festivities.  Friday a lunch at work, Friday night Chris' staff Christmas party, Saturday lunch with Dave, Sue and Gumpmom and Saturday night at our place.  To say the least, I was pooped on Sunday morning, but a Bailey's coffee to start the day kept me going.

No wonder you love Christmas so much. A sing along for Christmas would have rooted that love pretty deep! Awesome!
