Happy Coincidences

For my family, Christmas Day is often filled with coincidences. Perhaps we all have the same Christmas elves whispering in our ears at night? Sometimes things work out perfectly, and one of us receives a variety of different gifts on a particular theme: though it wasn’t planned, it couldn’t have worked out better if it were. Other times, we aren’t so lucky and one of us gets the exact same gift from several people. One year, everyone gave and received pizza stones. We laughed as the day wore on and pizza stone after pizza stone emerged from each neatly wrapped package.

This year, I experienced a happy coincidence of a different sort. As I’ve mentioned here before, I participated in the Holiday Ornament Exchange hosted by cake & pie and freshly{blended}. Since more than 600 swappers from all over the world signed up for the exchange, we were organized into groups of ten. I received many lovely ornaments, and one of my favorites was a little green fleece Christmas tree from Heather at Bumblebird. Imagine my surprise on Christmas Day when I unwrapped a gift from my brother and his girlfriend to find another lovely creation by Heather! It was a darling little elf this time, but of course I recognized her style immediately– so cute, soft and cuddly. Now the elf and the tree are reunited and will be treasured Christmas decorations always– all thanks to another happy Christmas coincidence.

I hope your New Year is filled with many happy coincidences of your own.
