I love it!!
aw! cute fic! i loved the bit about the turkey! haha
I nearly cried.
Especially at the end... "To The Future". You should've made the title "May All Our Christmases Be White". But anyways, AWESOME, just like Lily and James, just THEM. You nailed it. WoW.

This story was really heart-warming. I think I understand what you meant by it being quite sad as well though; the ‘less hopeful’ undertones and senses of foreboding were very well written also.
“I’m not an invalid, James!” she told him, getting up and kneeling on the carpet to help him. “I can still participate in ‘normal person’ activities!” I love the tone of Lily’s voice throughout this story, you’ve capture her character really well. This seems like the sort of thing that she would do; despite the fact that she is pregnant, I think that Lily would want to join in the work and the ‘fun’ as much as possible. It’s nice to think that James loves her so much to make sure that she doesn’t hurt herself, and is even sacrificing friends time to be with her; well he should!!
“We’d been feeding it up all year, and mum realised she’d forgotten to kill it…” This just made me laugh! Lovely line… :D
I loved the use of “In the bleak midwinter”. Aside from it being my ultimate favourite carol, I liked the implications as well, of a more serious Christmas.
A lovely, warm story. Good luck!

Aw, sweetness! And exactly as I had pictured their Christmas too. Fantastic!
I can so see what you mean by this is a kinda sad story under all the cheer. I loved when Remus started figuring things out. He would! The ornaments were so fitting also!! Thanks for the great story! Cyns
