It never ceases to amaze me how different people are this time of the year. Total strangers taking the time to wish you a Merry Christmas, and vice versa. People helping out one another, when at other times of the year, they keep to themselves. Making an extra special effort to be nice, polite, helpful and caring.
What is it that causes this change in humanity? I don't know, but I sure love it! I just wish it would continue throughout the entire year.
Yesterday I was leaving the mall and a woman in a car looking for a spot asked me where I was parked. I said 3 lanes over, she followed and shouted "Merry Christmas!" as did I, I pulled out and she got her spot. Now that certainly never happens any other time of the year.
Would love to hear about your Christmas spirit experiences. I would also like to wish all members a very Merry Christmas and hope 2006 brings you good health, wealth and much happiness. Oh yes ... I almost forgot, and a wonderful partner too!
The lights are lovely & I've been enjoying mine since the beginning of Dec. Last night my X-Mas tree lights died, had an electrician in to make sure outlet & power bar were okay, turns out it was the bottom string of lights. Thank goodness, takes me 10 hrs. to light & decorate & I sure wasn't going to undo everything. Those prelit trees are looking pretty good to me right now (lol)!
I don't bake, but my mother-in-law is a fantastic baker & loaded us up with home baked goodies.
Saw your grandson's photo, he's a real cutie! Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!
I waited years to be able to buy my Parents a new car. Their car was 13 yrs old and I was uncertain as to how much longer it would run. It was an early Christmas gift and a surprise. They thought they were taking their car in for service, but instead I showed up to help my Father clean his old car out. That was the happiest day of my life. To be able to do something like that for my Parents. Merry Christmas.
