Fireworks!

It's the Christmas season and for spouses, there's usually an agreement on where to spend what.

In our case, we usually spend Christmas Eve with my in-laws and New Year's Eve with my folks. Usually it's the evenings that we look forward to. The actual days are usually holidays for recovering from the merrymaking and for lazing around.

Our family no longer lights firecrackers for New Year's. We find it a waste of good money. And since hubby and I are doctors and we have seen the different injuries that might occur with firecrackers, well, we'd rather not risk it anymore. Anyway, there are good fireworks shows around. There's even one that's visible from our bedroom window. We just close the windows, turn on the A/C, lift the blinds and turn off the lights to enjoy a fireworks show, no need for binoculars at all! Free and safe, and without having to inhale all that smoke and soot.  I'm sure we'll get treated to the same thing this year.  It will be a great treat for my little girl, who is already at the age when she could appreciate such things, and my son, who loves such light shows.
