It has begun

When my radio flicked on this morning, it was just in time for the beginning of the chorus:

Hark the herald angels sing, Glory to the newborn king...

Yesterday I noticed Christmas lights up in trees and on houses, the mountains are covered with fresh snow, the temperature here has dipped below freezing, and today's forecast is for flurries. (!!!!!) It's officially the Christmas season, and I'm so excited. I love love love love LOVE this time of year. I love the lights, I love the music, I love the food, I love the decrations, I love the conectedness with people. This time of year is peaceful (well, ok, hectic, but there are moments of peace in there, too!). It's cozy. It's full of beauty. It's a time when people work a little harder at taking care of eachother. It's time with family and friends. And it's a celebration of the greatest gift this world has ever recieved.

Merry One Month till Christmas!

I refuse to notice Christmas until December 1st.
But I am happy that you appear to have gotten caught up and are enjoying things. Which I won't speak of because it's Christmas things and I refuse to think of Christmas things until December 1st..

I agree with happy and blue 2, not 'till December. Growing up, we'd celebrate each Advent Sunday, our tree wouldn't be put up until Christmas eve, Santa came Dec. 6., Christmas was about Christ only.

Glad you're getting excited too, Hillary :) The shoeboxes did it for me! Oh, and glad to see that you eat the real mandarin oranges. Guess you're not old enough to remember the crates they used to come in, are you?
