Yet even while the music played, all the colours of Christmas failed to remove the silence of standing alone in her lavishly decorated living area. For as long as she could remember, her family had made it tradition to gather on Christmas Eve and begin the celebrating in anticipation of Christmas Day. This year circumstances saw it cancelled and Kate, who was playing host this time, was disappointed. She could see Grandma sitting by the Christmas tree singing along with the carols that played and scaring the little kids when her teeth would pop out at random. Her nieces and nephews would be eyeing off the Christmas presents under the tree impatiently waiting for night to turn to Christmas morning while her sister-in-law would tell them stories of growing up in a poor village in China where celebrating rarely involved presents. Uncle Charlie and Peter would be tucked happily away in a corner debating the pros and cons of the latest technology while she and her sister discussed with excitement the coming of her fourth child. Tyler would be gleefully teasing his younger cousins who were easily stirred and inevitably at some point during the evening Kate would catch her mum and dad away from the rest dancing softly and sweetly together. It was a whole evening of constant chatter mingled with laughter around drinks and nibbles. A night she always looked forward to.
Kate looked around again as she drifted back to reality. Regardless of how glamorous life could appear, it just wasn’t bright without the relationships she treasured.
“But they will be here in the morning,” Kate reminded herself with a soothing smile, “And tomorrow will be a very colourful day.”
