It just wouldn't be Christmas if.....
How would you finish that sentence? For me, my Church's midnight mass, with all the Christmas carols sung in joyful voice is the ultimate!
In addition, in our family, it wouldn't be Christmas if we didn't visit the
It wouldn't be Christmas if my PEO group didn't shop at our local Southbank store. The owner is a PEO member, too, and opens up the store for one night of shopping just for us. We see the new decorations and Christmas gifts. It is a magical night!
It wouldn't be Christmas if we didn't have my friend Barb reading the Christmas Story to us. Every year she reads to us and reminds us of the magic of Christmas. Reading is something I used to do for my daughter every year until she was old enough to want to read on her own. I still like being read to!
It wouldn't be Christmas without our annual trip to see the Plaza Lights in Kansas City. We haven't been there for the lighting but we have to make at least one trip to see these beautiful lights!
It wouldn't be Christmas without my mom's eggnog! It is a cold, rich, creamy drink without the additive of alcohol but we love it all the same! When my mom was a little girl, her mom made eggnog with alcohol and wouldn't let the kids have any. My mom decided then and there that HER eggnog would be without alcohol so the kids could have some too, and, it always has!
I hope I got you to thinking about what is important to you about Christmas! Make time for those special moments and if the decorating, baking or socializing doesn't get done, you will still feel like you had a wonderful Christmas!
