I don’t know about you, but Thanksgiving felt like a non-event this year. I usually spend it with a house full of family, all of whom are amazing cooks. There’s always a buzz of activity along with great food and spirited conversation. This year, it was just me and my two sons. And although we had a nice conversation around the table and made a few of our favorite dishes, it just wasn’t the same. Thanksgiving didn’t feel like Thanksgiving.
Because of this, I’m feeling the need to make sure Christmas feels like Christmas. And I think lots of other people are feeling the same way I do.
During the holiday season, I volunteer at a Lions Club Christmas tree lot. We order 550 trees and it usually takes us from Thanksgiving until late December to sell all of them. This year, we sold out in 8 days.
Christmas trees have become the new toilet paper. Everyone is clambering for one during the pandemic.
Seems like we all need a little Christmas.
Right this very minute.
Candles in the windows.
Carols at the spinet (or Carols in the spinach as my family used to sing.)
So my question today is this: How are you making Christmas feel like Christmas this year? Please share with me. I welcome your ideas!!
