10 days until Thanksgiving
41 days until Christmas
48 days until 2012
What do these days really mean for you? Does it scare you to hear the actual time left to shop and prepare? Do you have a tradition every holiday? Are they just another day to you – or do you celebrate in style? Do you have a favorite tradition or memory?
Thanksgiving is my favorite time – usually spent with family and friends over the years in our home – and also wonderful because of the food and the leftovers! However this year we are going to our daughter’s home to help them celebrate their first Thanksgiving in their new home.
Christmas Eve we always spend with our kids going to a movie and then eating and opening gifts in the evening with them. This year Christmas Day will have to be spent in our home due to our new puppy.
We usually don’t celebrate the new year with any special dinner or event – but I know many who do. In years gone by – New Year’s Eve was a very special all-night event usually spent with our church youth group. Now we’re just happy to go to bed – we are old and boring now 🙂
I’d love to hear your story and what you will be up to this year – in the holiday season.
