Thanksgiving is over and the 24/7 Christmas music has begun. Although on some radio stations that actually started the day after Halloween. And there was no way I was going to start listening then. I love Christmas but NOT that much. :-)
Soon the tree will go up and then the gingerbread houses will be created and the snow will fall followed by all the decorations, yummy hot cocoa and the caroling. Did I mention that I love Christmas?
The only problem with Christmas is that I kind of have a love-hate relationship with it. I hate the commercial part of the holiday but LOVE the spirit of it. Everyone seems different this time of year. More giving, more caring, and less selfish. But by the time the Christmas shopping and planning and socializing and caroling is over, I’m ready for like a year long break. Not to mention the clean up and decoration take-down. I’d rather stand in the snow with now socks on!
I guess what I’m trying to say is…welcome to the first week of December with me. May your holiday season be filled with peace and goodwill to all your men. And may we not be driven crazy by the crowds and the arctic blasts and the bells.
