So how was this years’ Christmas for ya? Did you get out of it what you expected? Well, I hope it went as you so desired.
Christmas time is definitely one of my better holidays. I personally love the atmosphere of giving that surrounds it. Although I do not get as many gifts as I was when in my youth, haha, I still love this time of year. The atmosphere just presents the right conditions to be unselfish and think of someone else. I personally use this time of year to give cards to employee families that express my thanks and gratitude for their invaluable contribution to the team.
I love the lights. I have seen so many nice decorations. Many have decorated their homes and offices so nice with color and designs. One design showed the entire house decorated with the focal point being a 50 ft lighted archway as you approached the door. So magnificent!
I love the celebrations. History will prove that this time of year spurs on many celebrations. Many celebrate their cultures existence, some celebrate just to celebrate, and others celebrate the birth of Christ.
I had the chance to go to the Chinese Lantern Festival. Wow. Nice! Love the food, designs, color, and history. Definitely, a must see if you have not experienced.
I love the food. This is kind of a given to me. Although I love to eat any time of the year, Christmas time presents a couple of season-specific treats. There are the good old egg-nog and Gingerbread cookie.
Of course, there is roasted turkey, Christmas ham, plenty of veggie trays, a mix of casseroles, and a plethora of desserts. Whatever offered I can tell you I am usually game to eat. This year as part of a pre-Christmas Day bash, Buffalo chicken dip, taco salad, and green bean potato soup were on the list. So good! I’m sure I went over my calories for the day. Haha!
Well, again! My prayer is that you, my friend had a good time sharing, giving, or receiving on this 2017 Christmas Day.
Stay tuned for the next post where I share highlights of the 2017 Pre-Christmas day celebration.
