The day after Thanksgiving begins the Christmas season for me. Some of my family and I will go out to a small village nearby and enjoy the Christmas festivities they have to offer. There is a candle factory and a craft show there that we always enjoy visiting. We’ve been doing this for many years now and if we didn’t do it, it just wouldn’t seem right
I BELIEVE in the magic of Christmas. The spirit of Christmas comes to us through images, songs and Christmas cards. It also comes from the warmth of a smile and a cheerful word. Christmas warms hearts like no other season of the year. It is a time when all people of all faiths share a warmth they don't feel at any other time of the year. People show much more good will and charity and they are more cheerful and loving too
We always want to do less--and enjoy it more. Every year I say the same…I’ll get an earlier start next year. I’ll be more organized… But I’ve found that the anticipation and the preparation is really half of the holiday celebration for me. It’s exciting and invigorating. I’m going to enjoy every ribbon I tie and every card that I write and savor the magic of Christmas.
