The Christmas season is the best time of the year. The music, the lights, a fire in the fireplace, the lightly falling snow: just to set the scene for you. Sure it may sound like the ideal Christmas scene, but it does actually happen! This is my favorite time of the year. The simple hustle and bustle of people doing Christmas shopping makes it perfect.
One of the best things about the Christmas season are all of the beautiful lights. I like to decorate the outdoors with hundreds of lights. There’s just something about it that I enjoy. It makes the house look wonderful with white Christmas lights covering the bushes and trees.
Wrapping up to go outside and play in the snow is another one of those things that I love about this time of year. So many memories come from playing outside in the snow, building forts, and making snowmen. Sledding can’t even compare to the rest of the outdoor activities. Going sledding down a huge hill is everything but boring. And the best part is at the end of the hill when you wipe out!
Winter is the best time to cuddle up with your loved one inside a warm house. Christmas music is playing in the background, sipping on hot chocolate or your favorite espresso, and under a warm blanket watching a Christmas themed movie. (On a side note, I’ve seen the Christmas Story about…too many times.)
Take this time of the year to stay close to family and make Christmas special for everyone. Give from the heart and cherish what you have been given. Merry Christmas!
