Christmas. Our first Christmas as a married couple. It feels strange not to wake up in my parents' house and awkwardly wander around wondering when they're both going to wake up and open the presents. In years past, we didn't open presents until 2 or 3 in the afternoon because my brother worked late and slept late. That wasn't bad. We'd get up and drink coffee and have a slow day without the hectic need to go anywhere or do anything. I wonder what my husband and I's Christmases will be like... probably a mashup of both, and that is fine.
