I love SANTA!
I will never grow up because it is my very favorite time of year and I truly believe Christmas is a state of mind. And YES, I love the Hallmark channel because they play Christmas movies throughout the year and d-o-u-b-l-e YES, because I will put the music up loud when the local radio station plays Christmas songs A-L-L day long!! (I sing even louder in the car).
Are you rolling your eyes at me??? Well, I'm shaking my head because if I was there with you, I would show you how much fun Christmas can be. It shouldn't involve stress, it doesn't mean you spend every last minute shopping for gifts....it's about spending quality time with your loved ones. Maybe I make too much of it, but you have to understand, I lost my parents too many years now, and they used to make Christmas a big deal in our house. Mom would put on a spread that could feed the Army, the Navy and the entire United Nations. She'd make room at the table for anyone and I guess I miss the people that used to surround that table.
So, enjoy your moments, create precious memories that you can hold for a lifetime.
until next time...
