Finally got to church! New Year's Eve: We attended 6:30pm mass, followed by a potluck supper at St. James. It was a great evening, until we got home. Backing into our parking spot, we got stuck in the snow and had to get help to dig us out. The good part was that we were already home, except for a metre or two. If you have to get stuck in the snow, I recommend it be done at home. That was about 10pm, so we still had a couple of hours to go before the new year. We did our usual thing: a lot of noise (banging pot lids) at the back door to let the old year out, then more noise at the front door to let the new year in, a cup of cheer, a New Year's kiss, and that's our celebration. Happy Hogmonay! And lang may your lum reek!
