When you get as middle aged as I am, you get to a point that Christmas seems like the same old same old every year, and might I add, you get through with one and it seems like the next one is right upon you.

But then you get lucky enough to move to and live in the most Christmasey place on Earth, and you wind up rediscovering the magic feeling.  I feel like this is my first Christmas of my conscience lifetime, all over again.

Tonight, I’ll be going to Midnight Mass at Cologne Cathedral.  On my bucket list is M/M at The Vatican, in spite of the current year Pope — Maybe next year.

And just like on Thanksgiving, I’ll be spending Weihnachtentag tomorrow definitely not alone, and with a batch of the family pork sausage dressing recipe in tow, and later on tomorrow night, I’ll Skype my family’s Christmas gathering back home.

Fröhliche Weihnachten, mein Freund!

Christmas Day itself was sort of the sad ending to a really happy season. Today made me realize all I gave up and all that it cost me to be here.

It's your dime, spill it. And also...NO TROLLS ALLOWED~!
