I’m borrowing this idea from my sweet friend, Kristen. I love her blog, and I enjoyed reading her list. I thought I would share my own list of Christmas truths. And, nothing speaks lists like bullet points…
- I drive many of my co-workers crazy because I tend to start counting down the days to Christmas in July. Even in the midst of 100 degree weather, I can get excited about Christmas being 6 months away.
- I’ve been known to play Christmas music as early as August.
- As a kid growing up, we would always play Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton’s Christmas CD while decorating our tree. I still have this CD today and I enjoy it so much when I play it. The music floods me with so many fond memories of my childhood holidays.
- Every year, my mom’s side of the family will meet on Christmas Day and eat Oyster Stew. This tradition is older than I am. As a kid I can remember not even willing to try it. I always had a hotdog or BBQ instead. But, I do like it now, and I even introduced it to Kade last year.
- Last year at Christmas, my dad was recovering from having a stroke. Since then, he has been so fortunate to make a full recovery.
- In 2008, we buried my Aunt Cathy on Dec 17 after she loss her life from having a severe asthma attack. The asthma triggered a heart attack. She was only 43 years old.
- I’m guilty of reminding my kids that “Santa is watching.” By the way, it hasn’t worked thus far.
- Santa came and took Kade’s gifts away two weeks ago. While I was cooking breakfast, he decided to open one. Kade has been told that Santa will bring them back on Jesus’ birthday.
- For the past two years, our nephew Alex has been able to spend Christmas with us. He lives in
, so we’ve really enjoyed this time with him. Montana
- This Christmas will be my niece, Sarabeth’s, first Christmas.
- I’m actually finished Christmas shopping.
- My kids are spoiled! Kade and Kohen are getting mostly gifts together since we have every toy known to man for kids 2 and under. I feel like Kohen is getting cheated just a bit, but I know he’ll soon grow into the older toys.
- I’ll be wrapping gifts on Christmas Eve.
What are some Christmas truths you have?
