Like it or not Christmas will be upon us before you know it. I sort of have mixed feelings about it. I love Christmas; it’s one of my favourite seasons. The only issue I have with is time. Christmas seems to sneak up on me and then in a blink it’s over. I’m vowing to handle things a little differently this year. I know, I’ve said that before, but this year I hope it will be different. This year I’m going to make an effort.
The Santa Claus Parade is this Sunday. That’s the big indicator that the Christmas season is here. The parade gives me permission to start listening to Christmas music and reading Christmas stories and drinking eggnog and decorating the house. My Christmas countdown clock should help (that, or it will drive me to drink realizing how little time I have left).
