I just love Christmas time, it is so special to me. It reminds me of my Lord's birth to the World and all that He did & does for me. I enjoy the hustle & bustle as long as it is for a short season. I love buying gifts for others & the excitement of opening gifts given to me. I enjoy going to parties, parades, open houses, school programs, & Christmas events. I so appreciate the Christmas music & sounds of laughter & joy. I love the scents of gingerbread, Christmas trees, hot cider, cinnamon, & crackling fires. I especially enjoy decorating for Christmas. I know what you are saying, "It takes so much of our energy and time", but I think it is worth it to make the birthday of our Saviour special. I know that it has been commercialized & made to be what it was never intended to be & that saddens me, but I so love the essence of Christmas. It is the thought of the gifts, the enjoyment of the events & decorations that count not the quantity. There is such a vast array of styles & colors that people use to decorate & all of them are beautiful in their own special way. I like to decorate my living room primarily in white and gold for the holidays. I add little touches of color with the sparkled fruit & ornaments on my tree.
Have a Merry Christmas Season!
Until Next Time
