I Miss Christmas

Umm seriously Monday? Why are you almost here? You know how at the end of A Christmas Story the parents sit on the couch and recap the day as the snow is falling and the tree is lit.. My Mom loves that part, but I always think it's so sad because wahhh, Christmas is over!

  9. Both you and the dogs are unbelievably adorable! I'm with Kelli, I'm kinda glad Christmas is over, even though I don't want to take the tree down. Who doesn't love hanging out with a lit Christmas tree?

  16. Visiting from Janna's blog and I thought I'd say hi! :) I know exactly what you mean about being sad that Christmas is over! It's my favorite holiday and I start celebrating it in November so I'm sad when it's over. Granted, my decorations won't come down until mid-January just because I love the lights so much, haha! Anyway, it looks like you had an absolutely WONDERFUL Christmas! :)

  19. I've never read your blog in my life, but I found it googling "I miss Christmas". I'm a bonafide Christmas NUT! I look forward to it all year; I'm already excited for Christmas 2014. Let me tell you what's helped me optimize the season. I no longer look at Christmas as a day, but I look at the entire season as "Christmas". When I was growing up I HATED that my well intentioned parents made so much of Christmas about the gifts, on that one day. Even as a kid, who, like all children, loved getting gifts, there was this huge letdown when the presents were all opened. As an adult I made the decision to celebrate in a way that really allows me to indulge in my favorite time of year. I start the Monday after Thanksgiving and immerse myself in Christmas music, movies, food, prayer, praise, and just overall a basking in the spirit of the Lord and the joy of the season. I love both the spiritual and secular aspects of the holiday. But here's the thing, I don't stop celebrating until I want to! And that isn't typically until well into January. This past season my favorite part of the season ended up being January 1st-6th. I enjoyed the fresh snowfall, looked at Christmas movies, listened exclusively to Christmas music, had some goodies, and just overall had a really wonderful, consistent closing to the season that ended up being the sweetest part of the entire yuletide for me! So I now encourage Christmas lovers to define the season for themselves. After all the Philippines has the longest Christmas season; it starts there in September and goes all the way until January!
