It’s the best time of year! I’ve always loved this holiday even before I understood the significance of it as a Christian. It’s just a great time to be with the ones you love and celebrate and be happy together.
Merry Christmas y’all!
Today I’m heading to my mom’s house to celebrate with her and my siblings. I’m incredibly excited about a family gathering for Christmas since we didn’t do anything for Thanksgiving. It will be nice to get together as a family and celebrate.
As you get older you appreciate the things you don’t get to do as often. When you have careers and families of your own it’s harder to get together and spend time together in the same way as you did in the past. Having the opportunity to gather together is something I appreciate so much now that I’m an adult.
Plus eat lots of deliciously food that can’t possibly healthy. Oh, holiday meals! ;)
I love every holiday where my mom cooks us a big fancy dinner. As an adult I realize that it’s a ton of work and expense which makes me appreciate it even more. But I love having a delicious meal with turkey, dressing, desserts, and all the fixings.
Hope you are enjoying this wonderful holiday if you celebrate it, or having a nice Wednesday if you don’t. It’s a wonderful time to enjoy not-so-healthy holiday treats. Everyone has their favorite Christmas desserts and indulgent foods that you eat just at Christmas time. Sure it’s a high-calorie meal but it’s once a year! If you practice healthy habits year round then it’s not as big of a deal to indulge in Christmas foods.
I’ve always really loved giving Christmas gifts. This year we tried something new where we bought one gift for one person. I love the Christmas gift I bought for my person and it was really fun to give.
Since gift giving is one of my favorite parts of Christmas which is why I love to write about gifts so often. Here are some of my favorite posts about giving gifts:

If you are making your Christmas gift lists for next year then those posts should get you started. It’s always fun to give gifts so remember these when you are giving gifts for Christmas, birthdays, and other holidays! A just-because present is always nice too. ;)
Merry Christmas and goodnight!
