New Year's Eve Day was to be a family gettogether, the first time in years that every member of my immediate family would be in the same room at the same time, never mind adding in the spouses and children and, of course, bunny_hugger. After some dithering we took a single car, saving some redundant driving but also meaning bunny_hugger and I would leave when my parents did. It turned out that everyone was breaking up about that time anyway, though.( Collapse )
bunny_hugger and I were thrilled with the way the night turned out, and to the performance. We want to do something next New Year's Eve, too. It will be hard to match this year transition, though.
Trivia: The Magna Carta of 1215 directed that royal judges would hold county court sessions four times per year. This was dropped to a more manageable one per year when the charter was reissued in 1217, although even this was beyond what the English government could organize at the time.
