Joy and I have just returned from a pre-holiday trip to visit family. We had a nice time, and I left the dregs of my cold back in the city we visited (hopefully not with my family members!). Now we are home again, the Christmas tree lights are lit, we have a fire going in the fireplace, and all is right with the world. Shortly we’ll be snuggled all warm in our bed…well, okay, maybe a little longer than “shortly”. We may have a small Christmas Eve adventure planned first…

You see, my family always had a tradition that you could open one, small Christmas gift on Christmas Eve. It’s because we kids whined so much that my mom and dad felt the only way to get any peace was to cave and let us open one gift. And cave they did, probably when I was about five years old, and of course once that step was taken there was no taking it back, so it became a family tradition. Every year we could open one small gift the night before Christmas.

Joy and I have carried on that tradition. However, with the advent of BDSM in our marriage, and my own fondness for tools and toys, we’ve modified things slightly. Now, on Christmas Eve, the rule in our house is that we open one of those kinds of gifts together. And once the wrapping paper has been removed…well, how could we not try it out?

I suspect Joy will like her Christmas Eve gift this year. I’m pretty sure I’m going to like it, too. In fact, we may just find it mutually satisfactory!

Shoot…hope St. Nick doesn’t peer in the window as he makes his rounds tonight. Joy and I will make the naughty list for sure if he does…

Hope all who celebrate Christmas have a wonderful one, and happy holidays to those who don’t. Take care, and…

…Enjoy Yourself!
