With all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, mixed in with the end-of-the-year school rush, adding a dash of tradeshow preparations and a husband who works in the retail industry our December is crazy-sauce.
And now the day is here. The day when I do my best to slow things down, to savor the moments, to cling to the hope that the holiday spirit will finally descend upon our home.
We'll probably watch a movie or two. If we're really ambitious we might make some cookies for Santa. And then it's highly likely that we'll read the Nativity Story from the Bible (this used to involve a full-on play with the hubster serving as a wiseman, a shepherd, and the donkey to carry Mary).
What holiday traditions do you share? What makes today (and tomorrow) special for you and yours?
I hope today and tomorrow are as magical as they can be. Stay safe, healthy, and may you feel the spirit of the holiday no matter how you celebrate.
Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas from my family to yours!
