Happy Christmas to all and to all a fun night!

The holiday season is my favorite time of the year. It’s when I don’t mind the cold so much. When snow is actually a welcomed sight. When a hectic day isn’t as exhausting as invigorating. It’s when you know people will come to your home with smiles and evenings will be filled with warmth. Whether you’re traveling or staying put, the holiday season seems to bring out the lighter side in many of us. The side I wish we could all show and see throughout the year, every year. I guess that’s why this season is so special. It’s when more of us allow ourselves to let go, unwind a bit and actually have a little fun – without thoughts of our work load or overdue bills.

We were going to spend Christmas Day on our own this year. Just a quiet day – us and the cats. However, last minute plans have joined the ‘lonelies’ and so we’ll have a houseful of guests after all. I was out late last night doing a last dash grocery stop and I was up early this morning getting some of the food ready. Tomorrow, the good china will grace the table, the crystal will sparkle, and laughter and Christmas wrap will fill the house.

I wish everyone the happiest time they could have. I wish for it to last well into the new year – and hopefully beyond even that. I wish for all of us to slow down, enjoy more moments, realize each is precious and unique, and I wish for health, above all, for everyone.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Thursday… Happy Holidays to all.  heartbeat

  • May you and your guests have a wonderful Christas day. I am looking forward to a quiet family day tomorrow with a crow on Sat. It’s a lot of work feeding a bunch but I wouldn’t change having the joy of them gathering together.

    I love the picture of your door. Very Christmassy.

  • For some reason I had it in my head that Christmas Eve was tomorrow – don’t know why.

    Anyway, I hope you and your family and friends have a wonderful Christmas. 🙂

  • Merry Christmas, Debbie. You are a giver, and you will receive much good cheer right back!

  • Linda,

    Enjoy you’re quiet family time today before the rush this weekend. It’s that rush – that would normally make me cringe – which I love so much about the holidays. It just wouldn’t be the same without the need for extra oomph, you know? 🙂

    Laura,
    I think you thought you had another day because the days have been FLYING by lately. I wish Christmas Eve and Christmas day were each a few hours longer than all the other days of the year.

    Kathleen,
    That’s so sweet of you, thank you so much.

    All of you – have a fantastic holiday!
    ~Debbie

  • Merry (belated) Christmas to you too!

  • Even more belated from me. 🙂 I hope you’re having a Happy New Year.
