Christmas

I don't know where this month has gone. Time is flying by.

I always am really into all the Christmas stuff- decorating, tree, lights, shopping, movies, music, etc. I enjoy the Christmas season.

This year, I've done far less than I usually do. I've got my Christmas tree and village up, and my outdoor lights. I've finally baked some cookies and all. I went to one Christmas concert last week. I've been listening to some Christmas music, just in the last week or so. I haven't been to the mall at all this season! Much of my Christmas shopping was done before December or online this year.

So, for whatever reason, possibly because of my busy schedule this year, I am still trying to grasp how Christmas can possibly be just over a week away! I'm also trying not to join the multitudes of people that are so stressed over this season, which is part of why I've been avoiding malls and crazy shopping days. I'm enjoying this Christmas, still watching an occasional Christmas movie or music and stopping by some shops to browse and shop. But, I'm not getting caught up in all the stuff there is to do- wrapping, shopping, parties to attend, baking to do, guests to prepare for, etc. I'm not getting caught up because I know I'll continue to enjoy Christmas this year if I keep the joy of the season. I'll keep the calm and pleasant attitude through the chaos of the season, even if I'm serving customers that are stressed and too busy with all the holiday "stuff".

Christmas will be great this year- 2007!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
