In addition to trying to ride on all of the holidays in a given year, I like a bit of fire. Having the entire day off on Christmas Eve allowed me to indulge in both.
The non-riders went sledding and we met them at the hill for some hill-fat-biking and other hilarity. Then we lit the fire and got the hot drinks and the brandy flowing.
It’s the first time we done this sort of thing on Christmas Eve, but I can tell you that I’m eager to make it a regular holiday tradition.
