The Night Before Christmas

It was the night before Christmas...

Well, not really. It was actually 2:00 in the morning.

I was sleeping peacefully, dreaming of squishy gumdrops and glittery sugarplums dancing about in my head…when I suddenly awoke.

Ken was madly shaking me. He was sitting upright in fight-or-flight mode and was staring into the living room.

A faint glow appeared through our curtains, its light, splashing onto our wooden floor, eerily moving from side to side…

It looked like a mob had come to our home.

As we peered out of our windows, listening carefully, we realized that the haunting chants and flashing lights were actually something quite different.

It turns out that the “mob” was just a small group of members from our local church, holding candles and caroling in Korean right outside of our bedroom window.

After deciphering the mysterious sounds outside of our home, we slowly drifted back into a slumber as our heart rates slowed and the caroling faded away into a faint, but final “Merry Christmas…”.
