It’s the most wonderful time of the year…


My budget hotel room in Paharganj needed a little color; a home/party decorations shop in Khan Market that has gone completely Christmas-themed was happy to assist. If I weren’t leaving Delhi in two days (and it weren’t so environmentally unfriendly), I would have bought a six-foot fake tree, too.

Unfortunately, after one evening, the blue, red and gold lights had all crapped out. I sucked it up and went back to purchase another strand today. I’ll be more gentle this time.

I’m praying that as I’m traveling through the holidays, wherever I stay has at least as one electrical outlet. Perhaps I can decorate a palm tree.

‘Tis the season.

    This made me smile. We’re listening to baroque Christmas music and going through our decorations today. Miss you.

    I’ve been digging on Harry Connick, Jr.’s three Christmas albums since the day after Thanksgiving.
