Silver Bells

Christmas is almost upon us. The stores are packed with shoppers getting that last minute treasure for their loved one. Families are traveling to spend the holidays with each other, and kitchens are being filled with the smell of delicious traditional dishes that every family cannot live without. Christmas time is probably my favorite time of year. I love it that everyone celebrates in some way. Stores and houses decorate, and everyone says "Merry Christmas". Even though some might celebrate for the wrong reasons, the joyfulness, and excitement that comes from this season, we all share.

This year I was able to decorate my house for Christmas for the first time. I had so much fun turning it into a place where you could see and smell Christmas everyday. This year, I purposed to do something Christmasy every night, from parties, to company, to watching a Christmas movie. Of course I have a list of the Christmas movies I grew up watching, and then we added to it as well. Joel and I have had so much fun developing our own traditions, taking from our childhood traditions, and making this season a joyous one. I hope that all of you have a very Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!!
