I love the holidays. I love Christmas. I do. The spirit of giving gifts that are carefully thought out without a hidden agenda of getting something in return… well that’s just super! The family gathering together and eating good food while enjoying each other’s company….I love it.
My parents have cut back on the holiday extravaganzas, but I’m finding the same to be true of all of my friends’ parents as they are getting older as well. It must just be a parent thing. You do it for so many years, you start downsizing. I guess the more they downsize, the more I upgrade.
I have this thing about needing roots and home. So, Isaac and I are inviting everyone over this year. I decided last year that if nothing else, I’ll make Christmas happen the way I remember it as a kid.
Presents are already wrapped and under the tree. I’m very excited.
