Christmas is Here!

Are your brown paper packages all tied up with string?  

I tend to start getting stressed out about the holidays right around Thanksgiving.  I dream that it's December 23rd and I have not started shopping yet.  It's like that dream where you are back in junior high and don't know your locker combination or your class schedule.  But here it is, December 23rd, and the gifts are wrapped and piled high around the tree, co-worker gifts were assembled and distributed, 30 dozen or so cookies have been baked, cards and packages have been mailed and by now should have been received.  I have a few "maybe I should have done" ideas lurking around the back of my brain, but I have decided that what is done is enough, and it is now time to relax and enjoy my family and be happy for what we have to share.  My Christmas wish for you is to have the same sense of contentment.

To paraphrase the immortal Charles Dickens, may Christmas find you light as a feather, happy as an angel, merry as a schoolboy.  May you honor Christmas in your heart and keep it all the year.  God bless us, every one!

I still have some cooking to do tomorrow. But will be doing it with my kids. So it will be a lot of fun. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Oooh, I can't wait to see what you got. I know, such an attitude is just awful, but hey, I want to see.

Merry Christmas!

Great post. I've had those exact dreams and they cause me to panic. :)

Hope your New Year is happy, prosperous, and healthy.
