…of Christmas, of course. Hubby and I just returned home from our 3rd holiday party this week, only one of which was actually on Christmas Day, and we have an invitations for one more tomorrow night and one more next week.
I think the world is in far too much of a hurry to get Christmas over with. SHOP! SHOP! SHOP! the retailers cry, and then as soon as Dec 25th arrives it’s ‘out with Christmas’, start hanging up the Valentine displays. Must condition consumers to always be thinking of the next holiday.
Feh. Not this lady. Advent (four weeks of “waiting for it”) was wonderful this year: mostly warm and sometimes sunny, with flowers still blooming during the first week. Then switching over from coffee to hot chocolate as my morning beverage sometime mid-Advent, as Christmas greetings started to arrive in the mail. Finally the last night of Advent a beautiful midnight Christmas service at my home church to bring in the holy day.
Now it’s time to celebrate Christmas — all twelve days of it. The twelve drummers drumming will be arriving sometime on January 5. Till then the phone is off the hook.
