By now, the cherubim and seraphim who celebrate Christmas around the world, and in your life, have done their thing with all the treasures “Santa” left. The adults connected to said cherubs are probably relieved, and exhausted.
It is “the most wonderful time of the year.” It is also the busiest, at least in my life.
