I had to scrape the frost off my windows a couple of times last week. Traffic’s starting to get heavier around the mall. Been hearing a lot of Christmas music on the radio, in stores, at the dentist…I caught myself whistling ”Frosty the Snowman” today. Hooold on a minute! Feels like I just packed away the Christmas decorations last month and here I am unpacking them again.
While we were in California in early November, guess what I heard in a store. Yup, Christmas carols! And they were busy setting up a huge Christmas tree. The beginning of November’s just a wee bit early for me to get in the Christmas spirit, so I just ignored it
Can’t ignore it any more…just packed 10 boxes of Christmas decorations upstairs so that the decorating could begin. I have to admit, we’ll be in the festive spirit when we’re done. I guess it’ll all be worth it…and some of the cool snowmen figurines and other miscellaneous ornaments we’ve collected over the years bring back great memories of Christmas’ past.
And I like the way for the most part, we become more caring and helpful at Christmas time. It really does bring out the best in many people. It’s a time when Christians celebrate Jesus Christ’s birthday. (That really is where Christmas originated). And we reconnect with family and friends, partake in “festive” food and drink, and smile way more than we normally do.
Not to mention the gift giving, hugs, and kisses under the mistletoe…can’t forget to put up the mistletoe this year. And I think I’ll learn to pick a few Christmas carols on my guitar this year. Wooooo, I’m really getting in the Christmas spirit now.
I think I’ll go and put on a Christmas CD and make myself some hot chocolate. All we need now is a little snow
Have a fantastic day
