Christmas morning came with plenty of presents and new distractions. What I wanted most that afternoon was a nap. However, by dinner the house smelt great and we embraced our comfortable surroundings. It was the first Christmas we had without any of our extended family and although it felt different, everyone was upbeat. Our traditions will undoubtedly continue to change as we get older and our families grow, but to me Christmas will always be special.
