After the Christmas Vigil Mass, Colleen and I traditionally sit down to a good beer and some snacks while we reflect on the joy of the season. This year I found a bottle of Delirium Nocturnum in the cellar. This Belgian Strong Dark Ale goes just fine both with some chips and dip, as well as the Pickled Herring on crackers. And of course, Colleen's homemade fudge.
After the hectic days of preparing for Christmas, this evening is most peaceful, but filled with anticipation of the Feast ahead.
