Meredith's Monday Musings: Christmas Time!
Happy Monday! Did everyone survive the freezing temperatures that came with this past weekend? I barely did. I hate the cold, so I stayed bundled up inside where it was warm.
Can you guys believe this Saturday is Christmas Eve and Sunday is Christmas Day? I'm so excited. That's what today topic is all about: Christmas!
I love Christmas time. It is my second to favorite holiday. But, I do love this time of year. The cheerfulness that is everywhere and the giving spirit of most people. On the flip side, it kind of drives me crazy all the busyness and how materialistic people become. I feel like all of the shopping makes people lose sight on what this season is all about. It's not about the objects you get and didn't get. It's about the people you're with, being kind to others, and being thankful for what you have. At least, that's what I feel this season is about.
That is why I love Christmas. I get to spend time with those I love, be extra kind to strangers, and just be thankful for everything I have. The Christmas carols and food that comes along this time of year doesn't hurt either. ;-)
Since there won't be another Meredith's Monday Musings post until after Christmas, I hope that you all have a very Merry Christmas!! And please, if you are traveling, drive safe. There will be many people driving that night and sadly, they all won't be sober. So please, be careful.
