Happy Saturday and blessings to you. It’s TGI Saturdays’ 46th party and it’s a countdown to Christmas party. Hope you enjoy. Today is Saturday, December 5th, 2015, that means it is 20 days until Christmas day.
I have lots of questions for you, and I’d love for you to answer one or two or more, if you can. I really want to know how are your Christmas plans coming along?
1.) Did you put up your Christmas tree already?
2.) Do you like to put it up early or late December?
3.) Do you use a real or artificial tree?
4.) Did you start your Christmas shopping yet?
5.) How many people are on your Christmas gift list?
Okay, I’ll just stick with those five questions for now. To answer them for myself.
1.) Not yet, hoping to get a tree this weekend
2.) I like early, sometimes as early as December 1st, went to a lot once when they were now in the process of setting up their trees for the season
3.) I like to use a real tree, though in the long run it is more costly and inconvenient (needles/clean-up/lifespan) than an artificial tree. I love to smell that pine.
4.) I would if I could, but we’re broke at the moment (hate being broke at Christmas time)
5.) At the moment, just my 4 kids and husband. No friends yet in our new hometown. May consider mailing cards to relatives, old acquaintances and friends.
I love Christmas, I love almost everything about it, just how this season feels in general. I love giving Christmas gifts, watching Christmas movies, listening to Christmas music, Christmas decorating, Christmas lights, Christmas baking, cooking and more.
And yes, I do remember the reason for the season. Celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ.
The true spirit of Christmas represents all Jesus was and is- love, kindness, giving, sharing, friendship, family, forgiveness, miracles and more.
May your Christmas season be blessed with the love and light of Christ in all you do.
Blessings to you.
