A Few of My Christmas Faves…..
My dear readers, I have many favorites of Christmas and I thought I would share a few with you, as we do the countdown to Christmas.
Gosh, only 4 more days til Christmas!
Do you remember how slow time dragged by when when we were kids?
Now…it flies by so fast, that it about knocks me down as it whizzes away. 🙂
1. First and foremost is Christmas is the birth of our savior, Jesus Christ!
After all…that is the real reason for the season. 😉
2. Family! This is a time for all our loved ones to get together. I am so very thankful for my children and grand children.
I love to see the excitement in their eyes.
3. Next, who doesn’t love the smell of the green branches of a freshly cut Christmas Tree?
Since moving to Florida, we have relied solely on artificial trees….but I love to go to one of the Christmas Tents and buy fresh greenery or sometimes I buy a wreath…
I just love that smell….can’t get enough of sniffing it!
I love to watch the old Christmas Favorites like…“The Christmas Story”, “Miracle on 34th St”, “White Christmas”, “The Bishop’s Wife”.
5. The Christmas Music!
I really love the “old” songs, like White Christmas and Silver Bells sung by Bing Crosby and Perry Como. My radio…yes radio! 🙂 (My Bose) is on a station that plays all the old favorites.
6. Homey House Smells!
I love the smell of wassail simmering in the crock pot, the cinnamon and spices wafting through the house!
7. Christmas Caroling!
Our church has a group that go out to nursing homes and shut-ins so they can “hear” the sounds of Christmas. This is most rewarding!
Some were really quite good and it put everyone into the spirit!…we were told more people donated more money after watching their performance!
I just couldn’t resist sharing this Bell Ringer joke. It doesn’t take much to make me laugh! 🙂
9. Grandma’s Apple Raisin Cake!
I always loved the smells of Grandma’s house! 😉
10. On-line Shopping!
And Yes, I bought the Captain’s present on-line …..but I can’t tell you what it is.
He would read about it….and then it wouldn’t be a surprise….:) …but I promise I will show you after he opens his gift. 🙂
Do you, my dear readers…. have your own Christmas Favorites?
Share them if you like.
