I’ve been adulting so much lately that I couldn’t be more thankful for this season to make me feel like a kid again! Growing up, there was always so much excitement in the days leading up to Christmas. I’ve never told anyone this, but I remember, as a child, always feeling sad as Christmas Day drew to an end. I remember wishing Christmas Day would last forever and before the day ended, I remember capturing memories in my mind like a photograph. It was never really about the presents for me, it was (and still is) about the magic of the season. Now that I’m older I realize, Christmases change over the years but the “Christmas feeling” remains the same.
Each year when we choose to welcome the Christmas season with open arms, we rekindle that feeling. So this December, bake those sugar cookies, listen to those classic carols, decorate the tree, hang the lights, watch all the Hallmark movies, put on an outfit inspired by Buddy the Elf & Mrs. Griswold and treasure those you love.
Lastly, points to anyone who can name the Christmas movie the title of this post comes from.
Happy Holidays, everyone!
