The Christmas season



The Christmas season

Perhaps my most favourite time of year

It’s not just one thing that delights me but so very many things that put a smile on my face

It’s the season of soft twinkling white lights and hanging decorations on the tree

It’s decorating your tree with ornaments that you’ve collected over the years from the many places you’ve visited

Each one having it’s own story

It’s traditions eagerly looked forward to experiencing again

Making more memories

It is gifts chosen with care and lovingly wrapped and placed under the Christmas tree

It is Christmas carols sung at mass with loud voices and open hearts

It is waking up to a white Christmas (we can hope!)

It is a season of hand written Christmas cards

And e-cards sent to far flung locales

Renewing connections

Spreading warmth and joy

Giving special touches to those

We cannot touch physically

This time of year has always been a special time for me

Perhaps it is because I am a December baby

My birthday a holy day

The Immaculate Conception of Mary

The month and then the day presenting my parents with the perfect first and middle names for me

Things always seemed brighter, purer at this time of year

The season, despite rampant commercialism, still touches me

Lightens my heart with joy

Renews my faith

Makes me believe in the impossible

Makes me hope

For the future


*Many sincere wishes for the merriest of holidays to all of you and my profound thanks to those that read and comment upon whatever whimsy I release onto the pages of this blog. Thank you and Merry Christmas!
