The turkey is brought into the dining room as carols play in the background.
Everyone seems so happy to be with their family; it could really be a picture on a holiday card.
Gifts are handed out as the 'Yankee Swap' finishes and jokes are passed about who got the silliest gift.
Eggnog and cookies make the rounds as the children listen to the adults tell humorous stories of their Christmas past.
The icy wind howls as I watch the festivities from the curb, clutching my shopping cart full of cans and worldly belongings.
Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year.

    Food for thought there, Jason. Nice festive drabble.
