The Pretty Sounds of Christmas

 "Sleigh bells ring ..." and the muttered curses when you can't open the fruitcake tin - the door bell or the knocking at the front door ... as guests announce themselves.  

The not-so-pretty - TVs blaring either "Miracle on 34th Street" or a sports event. The excited barking of the family dog.

The squeals of little kids delving in the presents under the tree..

I miss them.  But my family is in Chicago or Long Island or San Diego ... just not in Redondo Beach.  Our friends?  One moved to San Diego; two died.

I hope you have all of the family you can stand on Christmas Day!  

And listen for the sleigh bells!
