It’s the most wonderful time of the year

Christmas has always been my favourite holiday.  I mean, how could it not be?  Some jolly old guy breaks into your home in the middle of the night, brings you presents, and then eats your food!  Who could possibly not love Christmas?

In all serious-ness though, Christmas is my favourite time of the year – period.  It’s a time spent with your family – all the {crazy} cousins, aunts and uncles included.  At my house, one of my parents is usually working – their jobs don’t exactly stop at Christmas.  After we have our little Christmas with my Nanny and Enno, we typically head up to my Grandma’s for a Christmas lunch.

This year, we had not one, but TWO parents home for Christmas!  It was a Christmas miracle!  We got to wake up at a decent time, didn’t have to worry about being quiet for the rest of the day so we didn’t wake one of them up… it was marvellous.  We also didn’t go to Grandma’s for a Christmas lunch, but we had our own meal at our house with Nanny, Enno, and Michael – oh, and of course Willow.

Now that my siblings and I are practically grown ups (I don’t care how old I am, I am not ready to be an adult.  So there.) we get less presents than we did when we were younger.  My parents tell us every year not to expect much for Christmas, and every year they seem to just tell us that to trick us.  Because, every year, it seems to me like we have plenty of presents.  My parents somehow manage to get us the things we want/need, as well as other gifts – enough that I honestly don’t really notice a drop in the amount of presents.

As I was saying, we are lucky enough to have parents who always manage to make sure we are happy, and who spend more money than they really should on us for Christmas.  I’m not telling you what to do mom, I appreciate it and everything, I’m just sayin’.

Christmas is a time to appreciate what you have and who you’re with – especially if you spend the rest of the year taking it for granted.

Tell your family you love them.  Don’t wait for next Christmas to roll around.
