“It made me feel like I was still there, able to share in the festivities.”
Christmas is my absolute favorite holiday. And I’m pretty darn pumped because it’s fast approaching!
I’m one of those people who get way too into the holiday spirit. As I write this, I’m sitting in a living room with command-hooked stockings on the wall, more than one vase of poinsettias, and both garlands and a bedecked Christmas tree. I have hot chocolate and marshmallows in the pantry and whipped cream chillin’ in the fridge. I’m telling you – I go all out.
But in reality, Christmas is really important to me because of my childhood. My family had so many traditions. We always went to church, saw lots of family, and spent tons of time together catching up and laughing. It was truly special.
Not everyone has a big family to gather with or certain traditions they follow, but I love that the holidays (whatever holidays it is you celebrate) are a time to slow down and enjoy the company of those you care about most. Which is why I really struggled with working Christmas Eve and Christmas day my first year out of college.
