Finding magic moments amid the stresses of the season
If you don't have Christmas sorted yet, it's too late - and your stress will only spoil it, writes Sarah Caden
Last Monday morning, I was up before everyone else in the house. It was just before 7am, the street was quiet, the sky was still dark.
I was folding clothes out of the dryer when something out of the window caught my eye. It was a string of lit-up, glowing objects in the sky, flying in formation across the black. For a split-second, I thought it was Santa's reindeer.
I know that sounds silly. It was last Monday and Santa wouldn't make a mistake like visiting almost a week early. I quickly realised, too, that what I was seeing were geese flying above the Aviva and catching its orange nightly illumination.
