Happy Holidaze

The Holidays
Holidays are special times for us to be thankful, celebrate births, remember those long gone, rejoice, make merry, honor, party, and be happy. It usually involves a lot of good food and eating. Sometimes there are presents, egg hunts, candy eating, balloons, noise-makers, praising, and giving. Regardless the event it is so…least we forget.

Participating in the 30 days of gratitude makes me more aware of just what all I have to be thankful for all through the year. Thanksgiving is a time for us to reflect and be truly thankful for everything. Christmas allows us to remember the birth of Christ our Savior. We count down the end of one year and ring in the beginning of a new one. There are holidays for famous people so we can honor them and their contributions to our nation. At Easter we celebrate Christ’s resurrection from the tomb and His ascension into Heaven after He gave His life for all of us. There are memorials and labors of love and those special people who have dedicated their life to fight for our country. There’s a day to commemorate the birth of our great nation, and a time to dress silly, eat sugary treats and play fun tricks. To me the spring season is a rebirth, summer a fun frolicking time, fall a time of change and winter a time to be still and think.

It is good to have these days and seasons set aside to celebrate, observe, remember, and enjoy ourselves.

I am enjoying this season of holidays the most…from the smells, colors, and coziness right up to the birthday celebration and a new year!

15/30 Today I am grateful for the holidays.

Yeah! Happy Holidays to you too---they are such an inspiration in our bleak winters. Makes things cozy and fun and yes, most importantly to remember what is important in life. To be thankful and to look to Christ at Christmas.
