In lieu of today’s post, I’d like to wish you all a Merry Christmas. I know that not everyone out there celebrates Christmas, and that you aren’t even all reformed Catholics, and even though I’m not at all religious myself, I still love to celebrate Christmas. Here’s why:
Christmas, to me, is a ritual. I grew up with the sounds and smells and sights of the Christmas celebration and just hearing carols or smelling sugar roasted almonds or seeing Christmas lights gives me the warm and fuzzies all over. I adore Christmas, and even though I actually celebrate it on the 24th (as GAWD intended!), usually with some vino (Jesus’ official drink, y’all), I’m happy to include all of Santa Claus’ followers as well (because I’m not a racist), and hereby dedicate this blog post to candle light, classical music, happiness, red noses, snow, opening presents, seeing others open your gifts, vino (had to be done), chocolate (YAAAAAAY!), twinkly lights, the smell of a pine needles, being inside where it’s cozy and warm when it’s freezing outside, long talks, pots of tea, cookies, family, hugs, and lots and lots of love.
Christmas is an awesome excuse to feel good. So, if you don’t celebrate Christmas, or Hanukkah, or Kwanza or whatever, why not go ahead and feel good anyway? Maybe you have the day off work. Or maybe it’s just Tuesday for you. Who cares? The reason we feel good on Christmas is that we decide to. So, whatever you’re up to today, wherever you are, why not join me and decide to feel good today. You know, just because that’s Who You Really Are.
