the most wonderful time of the year...

I love love love love love LOVE Christmas! It is truly the most wonderful time of the year and I look forward to it with a passion. I admit Christmas can get overwhelming if you let it but I keep my focus on the reason for the season (Our Lord & Savior) and enjoy every single part rather than turn into a scrooge. I tend to start listening to Christmas carols once Halloween is over so I can enjoy Christmas for two months rather than just one. Last year I even put our tree up on Veteran's Day so I had a little more time to enjoy it as well. I don't know what it is about this time of year but it just makes me happy. My husband & I even had a Christmas wedding. I love making cheesecakes and candies and wrapping presents and snuggling up on the couch with my honey or doggies this time of year. The one red light town that I live in comes to life during this joyous season as well. All the homes that line main street are warmly lit up with the prettiest Christmas lights and decorations and it is so welcoming and inviting to drive through- y'all should visit. I love having my family together and sharing stories and gifts with each of them. I love Christmas! What about you? Do you have this obsession over Christmas too or with another holiday perhaps?

 It's only August and I'm feeling this breeze that's coming from the rain we've had recently. It reminds me of fall! My feelings go into a seasonal mode with a specific feeling to fall and Christmas. I'm listening to Christmas music while doing my homework... I can't wait for Christmas! I wish my grandmother was here to share this feeling with me... Her spirit is here though(:
