Christmastime! It is not my favorite holiday but I still do love mostly everything about it. This year the weather is quite complimentary to magically, romantic, Christmas nights. Yes, I believe Christmas is one of the most naturally, romantic times of the year.
There is mood lighting everywhere! Driving around looking at Christmas lights is one of my most favorite traditions. If you live in a lovely neighborhood, it is so nice to toss on your scarf, crocheted hat, gloves and coat and take an evening stroll. Come home, drink a nice cup of tea or enjoy some warm cocoa with the chillers.
Is there any better time of year than Christmas time to snuggle up on the couch with a warm blanket and read some Advent readings? Or a classic Christmas story, bake goodies, decorate cookies. Move at a slower pace, take time to savor every last morsel of goodness of each day. Sing Christmas carols. Greet cashiers with a smile and leave with a hearty Merry Christmas!
The gospel is in every moment, in the mere word, Christmas. The music on the radio, singing the wonder of the most Holy Night. Sharing the Joy that has come to the world. During the darkness of winter...songs about the Light of the World are heard.
It's beautiful, isn't it?Absolutely lovely.
