“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere you go…” Christmas marks a special time of the year for many of us, a time for peace, joy, family, and a whole bunch of catchy Christmas music. See if this list of Christmas favorites strikes a chord with you.
“Deck the halls with boughs of holly…” Christmas decorations bring a smile to everyone’s face. The twinkling lights, a fragrant tree, and that ornament you made in first grade; what’s not to love? Take the kids out on a late night tour of holiday lights. Dress your house to the nines. Choose a tree (fake’s good too), and feel free to leave it up well into the New Year.
“On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…” While a partridge in a pear tree might not be on anyone’s wish list right now, it is delightful to give and receive at this time of year. Cherish a thoughtful gift from a loved one, and find just the right thing to bless another person.
“Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Jack Frost nipping at your nose.” Winter’s chilly temperatures showcase the appeal of a cozy evening spent at home with a tasty holiday treat. Break out the blankets, and snuggle up with a warm drink and your favorite holiday foods.
“Joy to the world!” Whether you celebrate Christmas as the birth of a Savior, or as a holiday of generosity and peace, Christmas is a joyful time of year. Relax, remember your reason for the season, and enjoy this Christmas.
Now that you’re in the Christmas spirit, pass it around by whistling while you work or singing while you shop. “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas; soon the bells will start, and the thing that will make them ring is the carol that you sing right within your heart.” Merry Christmas!
