December is rushing toward us at a breakneck pace! And I'm excited!!
I've always adored the Christmas season. I love the food, the candy, the decorations, the Christmas specials, getting together with friends and family... the whole thing. I also like that it's a holiday that is a month and a half long!
I'm not a religious woman. I'm spiritual, not religious. I believe, to quote Eddie Izzard "....I do think [Jesus Christ] did exist, and he was, I think, a guy who had interesting ideas in the Gandhi-type area, in the Nelson Mandela-type area, you know, relaxed and groovy..." But I think the season is more than that. Peace on Earth, Good Will to Men.
So while other people are complaining about commercialism, I'm going to nibble on Christmas Cookies, sip egg nog, and watch the "Charlie Brown Christmas Special"
