Today saw the debut of a new tradition: Friendmas.

One of my friends has a birthday on Christmas Eve, and has always held a low-key event in the days before Christmas. This year, things went the other way with a full dinner, much decorations, present-giving and general splendidness. It was pretty much Christmas Day before Christmas, but with friends … which I guess is the point of the title.

Let’s do it again next year!
