‘Tis the Season for holiday joy… and holiday annoyances. I asked bloggers for what they love or hate most about this time of year.
I am looking forward to setting up my Christmas decorations! Yes, it is a lot of work and sometimes I wonder if it is worth it, but then I see the excitement in my kids eyes and I know it is worth it. Plus, I love the way my house looks decorated too. -Emmy, Emmy Mom One Day at a Time
This is so simple, but I love unpacking and setting up our Nativity Scene. We have a beautiful set of Willow Tree figures that were a wedding gift. We have a separate set for our preschooler who is welcome to play/manipulate it. Last year he added a pink Cadillac, a few dinosaurs, gave one of the Wisemen a desk and another one a bed and put Mary on the potty. I’m really looking to see what his additions are this year. The world through the lens of a small human is so sweet.
Now that that’s out of the way, what I’m really looking forward to the most- peppermint mocha from Starbucks. Shhhhhhhhh. At 4 bucks and 400 calories a pop, they are such an indulgence! -NJ, A Cookie Before Dinner
It’s my favorite time of the year, these two months after Halloween. I feel my heart get lighter, I hear jingle bells, I indulge in the corny sappy movies, the heavenly scent of vanilla and peppermint and taste of Pumpkin pie and candy canes on my tongue.
I love wrapping the gifts, trimming the tree and having Wednesdays off with my husband to see movies and do all our Christmas shopping. As a mom, I love watching my children learn the real message of Christmas, I delight in telling them about Baby Jesus, having them help me set up the nativity and watch in my own childlike wonder as they take Santa into their hearts.
I live in Hope at this time of year. Hope that we will all be one community of people, one race of human beings if only for a little while during this most WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR. -Kir, The Kir Corner
