Last year we accidentally started a new annual tradition when we invited ourselves to the Senior Center to see the Community Band play. I still not certain if this is meant to be a “Seniors only” event but we don’t ask and everyone is okay with it. They love us and we love them and it’s a lovely evening. The band director tells jokes throughout the evening, the band plays famous marches and Christmas songs, there was a sweet lady celebrating her 100th birthday and we all sang her Happy Birthday, and then they feed us cake and punch at the end of the evening. Not once did I have to tell either of my children to pay attention, to stop squirming or to quit kicking the back of the seat in front of them. Now… it feels like Christmas.
