I Love Christmas!!!
But for this year we have to tone down our celebration.
After what we had undergone from the devastating Super Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda.
Despite of so much destruction, still going to put up our christmas tree,christmas decor and lights.
But this time were going to donate our christmas dinner, to those who got hit most.
But hey christmas is a time for family get together and cheer. So Advance Merry Christmas Angel and to my FAA family! I Love you ALL!!!
I have these warm glowy sense of idyllic traditions that I would like to nurture.
& then there is this thing; the thing that grows more every year like a monster threatening to swallow & consume all that we should hold dear.
Try to avoid it's existence, but more people go towards the frenzy of greed every year. & if you don't go along with their game - you're accused of being a Grinch & not having " Christmas spirit".
Plus the absolute animosity of the season in the name of that R word that we dare not speak.
I feel along the lines of Otil - feed & clothe those that are not as fortunate as us.
I love the spirit of the holidays, the decorating, cookie-baking, seeing family -- all that. Once I cut Martha Stewart completely out of my life, I can enjoy it more. She made me feel so inadequate, lol. Thanksgiving is still my favorite, though ... food! Mashed potatoes, eggnog, a bit of rum, yum!
