To My Family:
I love snowy Christmas mornings.
I love the lights in December. I love the music (my husband lets me start blasting it officially the day after Thanksgiving, but if I had my way it would be playing already!). I love decorating my house, particularly our $40 Walmart fake Christmas tree we bought when we were first married and it was the only thing we could afford for Christmas that first year. We still have the same tree. I love the Christmas movies. I love “secret santa” giving. I love getting (I am not going to lie to sound humble!) . I love shopping for: my daughters, my husband, my brothers, my sisters, nieces, nephews, the sick, the needy, my dad’s dog, well anyone. I love the thrill of finding a great deal and thinking “wow this is exactly what Jack wants!”.
I love love love Christmas.
I love saying “Merry Christmas” instead of “Happy Holidays”. I love having various nativity sets all over my house. I love going to Christmas Pagents. I love hearing about Baby Jesus and reading the Christmas story straight from the scriptures.
I can get a little carried away with things, and one is Christmas. I am already begging my husband to get our lights up on our house! Well, the reason for this post is that on ABC Family right now “A Dennis the Menace Christmas” is playing at 9:00 MST tonight, and I won’t be posting deals because I’ll be watching it with a big bowl of popcorn. I love ABC’s 25 days of Christmas.
Have a happy thanksgiving, get some cuckoo deals on Black Friday, but most of all have a Merry Christmas.
Side note about cuckoo deal shopping in December: If you find deals that you don’t need, but they are free or you can afford them, make sure to scoop them up and donate them to a local charity or church; these deals are greatly appreciated all year, but if you can’t afford it all year, remember that you can really make a difference in how other people’s Christmas’s go with a simple gift.
