Several times today, G expressed the wish that there was someone, or several someones here to celebrate the holiday and share the feast. Discovering last night that Brian was so near but traveling home, and the news that there may not be any get-together with the Henkens on this trip (again) are certainly contributing factors. Neither of us have close friends left within an hour's drive. His family can't be induced to come out for a holiday meal – maybe if we had an inn like in “White Christmas” (which we saw last night!), so they could camp out overnight.
