I’m so excited for Christmas. Second only to Fall, this is my favorite time of the year. I love the comfy, cozy feel of winter evenings. I love the carols and the smells. I love baking (and eating) Christmas cookies. But more than anything, I love the joy that hugs the world this time of year.
The reason I’m starting the 25 day countdown today, November 30th, is because I set aside the week of Christmas Day through New Year’s Eve to take a technological detox. I take that time to be present with my family, extended family, friends, and every other person I meet during the holidays. Christmas time is family time, at least for me. Plus, I kind of like the idea of the countdown ending Christmas Eve. It’s almost like it’s adding more anticipation to my favorite night of the year.
Over the next 25 days, I will be sharing with you some of my favorite things about the holidays. Some music, some movies, a few stories, and couple of recipes thrown in for god measure. Today, I feel the best way to start this wonderful time of the year is through this heart-warming video. It’s a beautiful depiction of the calm anticipation of the season. I hope you enjoy!
Ciao for now,
Happy Holidays! Xx
