Christmas is a special time of the year - while it can get very hectic, people just seem to come together to help each other more. While it can be a rough time for many, it can also be a time to share and bring smiles to the little one's faces. Seeing their eyes light up with joy is what Christmas is all about.
The one thing that I do enjoy is seeing the many lights that are on display. In our community people start putting up their lights right after Thanksgiving - and it is just so heartening to see the many different displays.
Christmas music? Oh my goodness! They started playing that before Thanksgiving! That was just a bit too much! I enjoy Christmas music - but not to hear it over and over again for weeks on end. For me, Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day are Christmas Music days! Non-stop! So, my friends, take a moment to reflect, be thankful for all that you do have, and rejoice with your friends, both the two legged and the four legged kind!
