Jennifer's BlogKeeping Christmas in 2018
Two weeks ago, millions of people around the world celebrated Christmas. People adorned Christmas trees with family heirlooms, prepared lavish meals to be savored by family and friends, and shared personally selected gifts with loved ones. For some people, Christmas preparations began months in advance, ensuring that every single ornament was hanging on the precise branch, while simultaneously making sure the cookies would have the perfect ratio of sprinkles to frosting. Yet for many of those who once looked forward to this splendid holiday, they were disappointed on December 26th. Why? Christmas did not live up to their high expectations. For others, the idea that the holidays were over was a letdown of monumental proportions. But as someone once said, all good things must come to an end. But does Christmas truly have to end? Is there a reason we cannot keep Christmas in our hearts all year long?
Christmas is one of my favorite times of year. My Dad and I leave our Christmas decorations up until after February 7th, my Mom’s birthday. She always loved Christmas and wanted to enjoy the decorations a little bit longer. Although she passed away nine years ago, we continue this tradition in her honor. As much as I love the warm, inviting glow of the Christmas lights in our living room, keeping our Christmas tree around a little longer is certainly a welcome sight.
