I found out yesterday that our service project is during the Christmas parade, so we'll miss watching the Christmas parade on tv this year (at least live, since they replay it a thousand times).
I'm pretty bummed since seeing the parade (in person or on tv) has become a tradition of sorts over the past several years. It's always when I do my first Christmas baking and I try to start decorating the house for Christmas (as early as it is).
So I'm bummed we'll miss it, but I am happy about hanging out with the small group. Like I said, bittersweet.
