New Year's Eve

Got your champan-ya chilling? Tomorrow is the glorious feast of Christ the King, the last Sunday of the year, so for Catholics, this is New Year's Eve. Off with some friends to countdown until the feast with Confession, Mass, all night adoration (by turns --we're not completely nuts!) --and then, a trip to a local all-night diner for breakfast (the true and fitting end to all parties, right?). Then we sleep awhile, and start again with the feast day mass and another party. Christ Rules! (And I don't mean that the way my kids say it. Or, wait, maybe I do.)
