Because you always wanted to know

December 23, 2009

According to Dave’s mom, today is called Christmas Adam (because Adam comes before Eve). Now that you know this, you’ll find you can use this term all the time. Because, really, all sorts of holiday events often happen on Christmas Adam. I have incorporated this term into my lexicon for so many years I forgot that it’s not well known (I said something to Eli about how we were going to bake cookies on Christmas Adam, and my mom, overhearing, wanted to know what on earth I was talking about). So, go forth! Have a lovely Christmas Adam!

    Ha! Cute. Your MIL’s moment of fame–does she read this?

    She does read it! Bethany, I like Little Christmas Eve, too.

    And a Jolly Christmas Adam to you and yours- from me and mine!
    Does one have to be naked for the day? I’d be all in if it wasn’t so chilly, i’m thinking of getting back into my fleece pj’s.

    My kids think every day is a reason to be naked. I’ve given up with Eli. (Well, almost: he wanted to walk to school today in a short-sleeved shirt, pants, and holey rainboots without socks. I finally convinced him to add socks, a sweatshirt, and a windbreaker, which still isn’t nearly enough when it’s 14 degrees out.)

    oh, well it’s 5C here i think that’s 40F. so as usual…can’t complain.

  7. Julie says:

    40 F! That’s shorts weather around here.
