It’s no secret I love Christmas. I mean, what’s not to love?
It’s Jesus’ Birthday.
You get to go Christmas shopping.
You get presents.
Everybody makes cookies loaded with butter and sugar, and it’s perfectly acceptable to pig-out on them.
You can be as tacky as you’d like with your holiday decorating and it’s all in the spirit of Christmas.
In my opinion, there are no negatives.
When January rolls around, I suffer from an extreme case of ACIDD – After Christmas Is Done Disorder. But, for now I will revel in all things festive and bright. It must be catchy, because the men of my house got a little freaky with the lights this weekend.
My house looks great in the dark and the power company certainly approves, but in the daytime…well, let’s just say that the cover of night makes every light twinkle a little bit brighter.
My old tree screwed permanently to a wooden table and stuck in the front yard glowing with too many lights kinda makes it look like Snoopy lives here. And you should see the porch! When my daughter is outside dancing around in the snow with her mouth open to the sky catching snowflakes, it’s a regular tribute to Charles Schultz.
Speaking of Christmas…
December got a bit sweeter when a package arrived in the mail. Two fabulous women, fellow bloggers, and Canadians sent me a surprise I will not soon forget. Take a peak!
Debra from Loyalist Cottage included these two lovely pieces of red Transferware in the box. She knows I’d like to collect Transferware someday and she got me started with a gift from her very own collection.
I am so very blessed.
So, do you like Christmas or are you caught up in hating the commercialism, despising the crowds, and road-raging in the traffic?
Be honest. I won’t judge. 😉
