Budapest has snow! It's a light dusting, especially compared to the mammoth overload of snow Ottawa got, but it's still lovely to see the city winterized. Okay, it's really slushy and grey (and still damp as heck), but I'll take it. I'm just excited to have now, officially, seen Budapest in all four seasons.
Thanks to everyone for their thought provoking and supportive comments yesterday, when I tried to explain why I don't celebrate Christmas. I was really nervous about that post because I wanted to be honest but I also really, really didn't want to offend anyone or steal any merriment. It was a lot of fun to read about the different ways some of you celebrate, and what this time of year means to you. Of course I loved hearing that some folks feel the same way as me (it's always nice not to feel alone), but I also really loved hearing from readers who do celebrate.
Even though I don't celebrate anything other than celebrating not having to shovel right now, I wanted to take a moment and wish you all a lovely holiday. I hope you and yours experience nothing but complete happiness for the holidays (and always), however you celebrate.
