my friends are pretty strange people, which is probably why i get along with them so well. for christmas last year, they planned a 5k run on christmas day wearing santa hats. on new years, they climbed a local mountain at the wee hours of the morning to see the first sunrise of the year.
but because i end up going home for christmas most years, i normally miss out on their end of the year shenanigans. so this year, a few of my friends decided that we should try to do something early. the plan we came up with was what we lovingly referred to as “kitchen town christmas.”
