I went caroling instead of baking all the indian corn meal cookies I'm baking today. Our big Christmas will be on Boxing Day this year. We keave this afternoon. One of my fav Xmas memories was attending Xmas Eve mass in Notre Dame de Paris. It was packed way beyond any conceivable fire code. A woman wrapped in white sheets rushed the pulpit howling something about killing all the wise men and King Louis the 16th too. She was removed without the priest missing a syllable of his sermon and in spite of the bloody bite to his ear that she left him with. Next the guy with the big incense burner swinging at the end of an iron pole tried to make his way through the crowd but somebody mistook the smoke for the burning fuse of a bomb and started shrieking about terrorists. We nearly got trampled in that mob scene as half the cathedral headed to the doors. I'm not sure what other crazy stuff went on because the police made everyone standing in the back get out. So we left and walked home laughing at taxis slide and careen in the 1/2 inch of snow that even foul mouthed French cab drivers can't manage to drive in. Have yourselves a Merry Little Christmas USMB boys and girls!
