Christmas without family and friends wouldn’t be the same.
Christmas without decorations wouldn’t be the same.
Christmas without presents, giving and receiving, wouldn’t be the same.
Christmas without mince pies, turkey & ham, spiced beef wouldn’t be the same.
Whether you are religious or not Christmas is a special time of the year. When I was a small lad we used to go to Midnight Mass and in those days tickets were needed to gain entry to the church because the church we frequented could not accommodate all the people trying to get in. We always had a crib at home and Dad would drive us around to a number of local churches to view their cribs in the New Year. We also had decorations and a real tree. The decorations have become much more sophisticated over the years and a real tree is no longer practical for us but we still ‘do’ Christmas. This is our first Christmas in our new home so it is extra special and Jean has done a fantastic job.
I’m not sure whether I ever did as much as Jean in the decorating sphere but MS has restricted my abilities even further. In any event I am quite happy to give my ‘Christmas Genie’ a free hand. She does it all and for that I am eternally thankful.
I would like to wish all my family, friends and fellow bloggers a Happy Christmas; may your lives be filled with happiness and joy this Christmas Season and may your spirit and determination remain undiminished in the new year.
