I’m actually really getting into the Christmas Spirit this year. It’s quite a shock. The holiday is usually so overwhelming, I tend to turn into a short-tempered grump. Not this year. All the decorations were up the day after Thanksgiving. Unheard of! My husband even put up some extra lights around the house.
We’ve done some crafts and watched a few movies, even had some hot chocolate and holiday chocolate chip cookies. Simple and delicious. It has been really nice to have a toned down, quiet version of Christmas this year. Everything just seemed to keep getting more and more extravagant (not necessarily in our house).
So I’m wishing everyone a merry and calming holiday season!
