I’m not much of a Christmas person. I don’t get into any holidays very much. So when Christmas rolls around I get the spirit of “Bah Humbug!” I try to go ahead and decorate the house … maybe that will get me in the mood. It helps a little, but doesn’t realy do the trick. I start doing my shopping … this usually gets me in the spirit at first. But eventually I realize I’m spending too much money on things people really don’t want anyway.
There are, however, three things I really love about Christmas …
1. I like when I can buy someone something I know they really want or will appreciate.
If it’s something I find that makes me think of them … that makes me happy. I’ve been known to give very odd presents to folks if they popped into my head when I saw it. It takes a special heart for someone to appreciate a rock, or some “slightly imperfect” underwear called “Bloopers” (sorry Kevin), but once in a while I run into someone that feels like I do … and will appreciate such a find. It can be a pretty strange gift, but if it makes my heart smile when I see it … then it’s a keeper.
2. Christmas morning hair!
This hair is only cute on children under 10. I love to watch my neices and nephew opening gifts on Christmas morning in their pajamas … hair everywhere … and the biggest smiles on their faces. Priceless. Here’s a picture of me sporting my own christmas hair.
3. The gift you must put on or try out immediately.
Tell me something you love about Christmas … maybe it will help me stay away from the “Bah Humbugs”!
