Sure, summer is fun. Fall is beautiful. But Christmas time -- it's just magical.
It's the sound of Christmas music. It's driving home from work & admiring all the Christmas lights. It's the glow of the Christmas tree, shedding it's hue throughout the house. It's cuddling under your favorite blanket, drinking hot cocoa, & watching your favorite Christmas movie... It's the fact that people, around this time of the year, seem more kind & generous -- it's like each day leading up to Christmas has a bit of magic sprinkled through out it. And it just puts you in a good mood!
Another thing that puts me in a good mood? Getting our Christmas tree. I look forward to the day every year. We bundle up, hunt for the perfect tree, & then head to breakfast to fill our bellies before the decorating begins.
Last weekend, we cut down our 5th Christmas tree as a married couple -- and it literally took us 4 minutes. Seriously, 4 minutes. I think that's like a record or something.
So let it be remembered, that the Christmas of 2015 -- that was the year it took us 4 minutes to find, agree on, & cut down the winner.
Amen to that!
