Whether it's really a widespread tradition, or not, I honestly don't care. I liked the idea a lot, and so immediately adopted it, and have done it ever since. So far, today, I have:
--eaten some panettone
--shared a yummy meal with some yummy wine with a very nice friend
--SMS-ed, e-mailed and Skyped other friends
--worked a bit
--FB-ed a bit
--at least touched my needlepoint and sewing supplies
--taken and downloaded photos
--and am "chatting" with you via my blog.
What else is on the horizon before today is over?
--calling some friends
--one of my all-time favorite movies, "American Dreamer".
How about you?
