Last day of November…

What better way to end the last day of November than decorating our Christmas tree while the Transiberian orchestra’s music fills our happy little apartment? I couldn’t think of a better way to say goodbye to November and hello to December.  I love listening to the music that celebrates our Saviors birth, the goodness God has given, and wishing the mood would last all year long really!

It saddened me greatly when I watched the news and heard of people getting hurt and even killed over black Friday. Truly people have lost the true meaning of Christmas and have lost themselves in consumerism. I enjoy a good deal here and there too but truly do people have to behave so savagely? This part of the Holiday season I do not enjoy, it’s the people stressing because of the economy …feeling that they can’t get things that their loved ones want…it’s not about all that though America tells us that it is.  One of my youngest sisters also greatly feels as I do and would prefer no gift at all during this time… we received the gift we didn’t even deserve thousands of years ago when Christ sacrificed himself so that we could spend eternity with him… Christmas to me isn’t about all the shiny/new gifts, not about Santa Claus,  it’s about my savior.  I did get my sisters a few things because God did bless me in the finical area and I wanted to guilty make up for not seeing them in over two years…

Next year and the years to come, I want to Bow out of Christmas.  I’ll celebrate the Holiday of course with good food and enjoying the decorating and lights but as for gifting everyone….that’s hard to do when you are trying to save up for a house and with probably more children on the way knowing me… (lol… yes I want more kids…they are a joy and a gift from God). I don’t mind Grandparents getting things for the children but as for me and I speak for my husband too we don’t need anything.
