Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays!

(This song just gets me into the Christmas spirit!)

December has always been my favorite month (excluding August, my birthday month, of course), and I know it's for good reason.  I'm one of those people who really gets into the holiday spirit when the temperatures start to drop and Halloween/Thanksgiving have passed.  I love decorating the house, the tree, the yard (or at least, I used to decorate the yard).  I love the twinkly lights, the sparkly, glittery decor, the scent of pine and gingerbread all over the place.  I love Christmas shopping, despite the hustling, bustling, crowded shopping areas. I love wrapping gifts and giving them out.  I love the food and feasts that come with Christmas, especially the desserts and the chocolate that seem to stockpile everywhere.  The parties with friends and family are heartwarming and lovely and just get me all warm and fuzzy on the inside.

So today, enjoy the time you're getting to spend with your family and friends. And have a lovely time consuming copious amounts of food and opening whatever presents you've received.  I hope all of you feel all warm and fuzzy and loved today :)

For us Christians, I hope we also take the time to remember that today is the celebration of the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  And that without Him, we really are nothing.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays!


  1. I think a lot of people actually forget the real reason the season is celebrated. And I really don't mean to be religious, but that's just what I believe - that Jesus is definitely the reason for the season.

    I hope you had an awesome Christmas Jana and I will speak to you (on your blog or on Twitter!) soon!

  2. Thanks so much for visiting my blog tonight, and saying such sweet things! I hope your Christmas is amazing, and completely perfect in every way. I also appreciate your adding the remark about the true meaning of Christmas. Couldn't have said it better myself! Merry Christmas, Alexa!


Thanks for leaving a comment! I love seeing what you have to say, and will try to reply (here or on Twitter) as soon as I can :)
