Confessions of a Befuddled Zen Buddhist

Christmas Tradition

We actually had a white Christmas this year.  I can’t remember the last time that happened.

Hm.

Really can’t remember.

While we were in the kitchen this morning, basking in our wonderfully strong Starbucks coffee, Zen Master looked out the window.

“It’s snowing!”  He exclaimed.

Actually, it was just flurrying.  But it was pretty to watch. 

It was a nice start to a lovely Christmas day.

So while we puttered inside the house, cooking and eating heartily, we also continued a family tradition that we observe every Christmas day.

We watch oldies.

Like the Sound of Music, My Fair Lady and Singing in the Rain.

They don’t make ’em like they used to.

Know what I mean?

Everything’s all digital nowadays, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing.  Not at all.

But sometimes in the rush of today’s digital reality, a body just needs to slow down and enjoy the simple things.

Well, my body does, at least.

Can’t really say for any other body.  That was quite presumptuous of me. 

Sorry.  Won’t happen again.

But this is what we do on Christmas day.

Watch lovely oldies while the world outside flurry white flakes.

Here’s to Christmas 2010.

And many, many more.
