Today was my last day at work before the Christmas break. The library closes tomorrow and doesn’t re-open until January 5. I am really looking forward to the time off. Today, in Newfoundland, its “Tip’s Eve” or as I like to call it, Christmas Eve Eve. Traditionally it was the official start of the holiday season – when you put up your Christmas tree, had your first “spirit”, had a party or went out visiting.
I thought I would share some pics of my library all decked out for Christmas. We have 3 trees – a white, a dark gray, and a pink tree.
That is one of my fascinators on top of the pink tree. I couldn’t find a tree topper I liked 🙂
Tomorrow evening we are hosting some friends and family for dinner. In my family we always have a baked ham on Christmas Eve. I’m also making Julia Child’s scalloped potatoes (or potatoes “gratineed” with cheese) and her brussels sprouts braised in butter. I already baked gingerbread for desert which I like to serve with warm rum sauce.
I wish everyone a happy and relaxing holiday filled with eggnog, family and friends, and lots of good food and fun!
