Christmas Eve turned out to be very relaxed; I stayed around town, did a little shopping and generally a lot of nothing.
Today I went up to Stevens again and spent the entire day boarding. Despite countless questions of 'are you a witness?' and 'why would you spent Christmas day here?' it was great.
I am dearly disappointed that I have to go to work tomorrow; surely it wouldn't hurt to observe Boxing Day, the definitive occassion for recovering after the indulgence of the day before. That said, I have to confess a certain fondness for the 'Day After Thanksgiving' holiday if for no reason other than its imaginative name.
