December the Second

 Yesterday I went to see my little brother play Scrooge in a local production of A Christmas Carol. As I watched the ghost of Christmas past, I thought about my own past Christmases. How exciting it became as Thanksgiving ended, putting the tree up and slowly seeing presents appear underneath, having snow days and making cookies & candies. I could never wait for Christmas to open my presents. I always snuck in little tears here and there. Until my Mother grew tired of me doing so, and then color coordinated everyones presents, with no name tags. It made it worse & better at the same time. Now that I am older, I have much more restraint.

I don't get near as excited about the Christmas season now, as I did growing up. Somewhere along the way, the magic seems to have been lost inside me. I guess because it doesn't really feel like Christmas for me until it snows. Or maybe I'm entering a slow decline into Scroogeism. Or perhaps it's because it's still early, and we haven't done anything really Christmas-ey yet. With the exception of pulling out our tiny tree.

To show you I am in fact, not a Scrooge, today I am giving away a Cherry Christmas charm pack!

  3. I'm definitely a Charlie Brown - scraggly tree and all! (Okay, maybe it's not quite that small, but sparse, lopsided and weighed down by ornaments? Check.) Thanks for the chance - I adore cherry christmas!

  5. I think Charlie Brown with a little of the Grinch thrown in. Decorating is not my thing, but if I could put one ornament on a little tree and call it "done", I would be thrilled. I am going to try to be better this year though. Deck the Halls...
