The After-Christmas

On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me /
A partridge in a pear tree.

On the second day of Christmas, my true love gave to me /
Two turtledoves, and a partridge in a pear tree.

So, I know that the Twelve Days of Christmas come after Christmas and before Epiphany (January 6th, I believe), but I never know whether the “First day of Christmas” is Christmas Day proper or if it’s Boxing Day…

Anyways, I’ve had two family Christmas celebrations so far—one with my dad’s side of my extended family, and my immediate family Christmas. My most exciting gift was a passive guitar pickup for my acoustic guitar.

I got to use this pickup yesterday at church, where I play guitar for our praise team, and boy did it sound MUCH better than trying to mic my guitar with a normal mic! And this way I didn’t have to worry about hitting the mic with my hand while strumming.

The last family Christmas—with my mom’s side of our family—is this Saturday. I’m looking forward to the time with family. (That’s always the best part of Christmas.)
