Santa Claus is Coming to Town

Yes, it’s that time of year.  Stockings are hung by the fire with care, in hopes that St. Nick will soon be there.   We are days away from the big day – the day Santa Claus comes to town.

So tell me why so many people are rushing around trying to buy presents for other people in a gesture of good will, yet many people are so angry by this.  If Christmas has become such a chore –  maybe you ought to change the way you do Christmas.

I love Christmas.  I love shopping for gifts.  I love wrapping the gifts, and I love watching people’s faces when they open the gifts.  The whole process for me is a labor of love.  I love everything associated with Christmas.  I also love how my house looks with the lights on, and I loved doing it.  I had a coffee and Bailey’s after I came in from putting on the outside lights, turned on the fireplace and loved every minute of that day.

I spent Sunday making lots of cookies for a cookie swap, and now, with the help of 10 other ladies at work, I have a different array of cookies and treats to serve people who come to visit… I love it.

So my wish for you is that you start to love Christmas again, or continue to love it.  And I realize it’s a busy time for everyone, but choose to love those busy times.  Smile – after all, it’s Merry Christmas right?  Not Scary Christmas.

Enjoy a safe and happy holiday Season
