It is 11:53 AM on Black Friday and for me that means that it is officially the Christmas season. I don’t care that Thanksgiving was just yesterday, I don’t care that we’re still in November. To me, it’s Christmas time and I am so very excited.
The one thing that excites me the most about this time is the Christmas music! I LOVE Christmas music to the point where I will actually secretly listen to Christmas music throughout the year on my iPod. Some people know this and give me weird looks but I’m okay with it because I love it. The songs make me happy, make me smile and that’s all that matters, right? Right.
I have Christmas songs ranging from Alvin and the Chipmunks, Winnie-the-Pooh, Martina McBride, 98 Degrees…and that’s just a few of the artists. I have over two hundred Christmas songs on my iPod that I get to rock out to when I’m wrapping Christmas gifts. Which, of course, will be soon because I bought all of the gifts that I need to buy.
I actually bought all my Christmas gifts about two months ago, in October, and they’ve been in my closet since then. I think I’m going to start wrapping them this weekend to get it out of the way. Am I crazy? Sure, most definitely…but can you blame me? Something about the holiday season makes me go a little nuts. The songs, the lights, buying gifts for people…it brings out the kid in me again. And you can’t honestly say that you don’t feel the same way. I mean you can say that but I don’t think that it would be particularly true. How can someone NOT love the holiday season?
I guess the reason that I like the holidays so much is because I know that those are constants. Despite what’s going on in my life, or with my family/friends/fiance, I know that every holiday season we will come together, decorate the tree, eat amazing food and just spend time together. It’s like, the holiday season marks. a new beginning with anyone and everyone. No matter what happened that year, it’s all washed away when the holidays come to light. Or at least that’s how I feel about it. I don’t know what others think.
So, as finish this, I wait for my sister to come home with wrapping paper so can really get the holiday season underway. Happy Holidays everyone!
