'Tis the season.

Christmas Parties are here and I'm loving every minute of it! The tree is decorated, crafting has begun and Candy Cane Lane Tea is being drunk. Sigh, how I do love Christmas. It breaks my heart to see how many people write this holiday off because of the commercialism that tries to sneak in and take over. I admit, it's there, it happens. But why let it!??!? FIGHT FOR IT!!!!

It's kind of like ends up being what you make of it.

And I am going to make it about what I believe. That it is a day to celebrate my spiritual beliefs. A day to remember how much I have to be grateful for. That my Savior was born (not on this exact day of course) and as a result I have hope and peace. That it's a time to be with my family, to have fun thinking up things that might be a blessing to them, that might cheer them and encourage them. To sacrifice a bit of my time and effort and money and make my friends and family reminders of how much they mean to me. Not because I have to!!!! But because I want to!!! It's not expected, it's not demanded, it's just fun for us.

Why let something that it's NOT ended up taking over what it really IS!?!?!?

Lovies and the little town of Bethlehem,

AHAHAH! That's awesome! I didn't even notice it. I must be more careful about where I put my "WEEE's"

That sounds like a terrible euphemism for something and now I feel awkward. ;-)
