Well, it’s only a few days away. Hard to believe Christmas Day is almost here!
This has actually been a long season since Thanksgiving was on November 22nd. Plus, with TV stations showing holiday shows early and Radio stations playing Christmas music 24/7 since the beginning of November, it has been pretty festive for a while now. But now the big day is just around the corner.
I’m about finished with my shopping. I’ll probably get a few things tomorrow then wrap presents (or in my case, put them into holiday gift bags!). Then the goal is to relax for a couple of days and enjoy the festivities.
The thing for me is that, for our family, the holiday doesn’t stop after Christmas Day. Actually, we put off going to some of our favorite light displays till after the 25th so we can stretch that holiday feeling a bit longer. Then there is always a small celebration for New Year’s Eve. On New Year’s Day, we usually make our annual trip to the beach for a walk in the water no matter what the weather.
So I hope you are ready or, like me, almost ready for the holidays. It will be here shortly and let’s make it a fun time!
