Why I Love Christmas

by sylvia

A few weeks back, I was getting depressed because I love Christmas and I had no Christmas spirit.  The Mr. Sylvia did all that he could and helped me get the spirit back with the decorations and the lights and the music.  Because I love those things.  Those are the things about Christmas that I really love.

But what I love the most is the “togetherness” of the Holiday.  I know, I know – it sounds so cheesy.  But it is so true.  And this weekend was the perfect example.

See, I have two sisters and their husbands don’t really get along.  And that obviously causes stress around the holidays, and some people aren’t willing to compromise to spend time with their family.

But this year, my niece from the West Coast came to visit for the holidays, and I decided that was a good enough reason to force everyone together.

And they did!  My whole family.  In one/two/three rooms, enjoying themselves, having some drinks, eating the unbelievable amounts of food, and singing some Karaoke.

And today – I spent the afternoon with all my nieces and nephews having fun and laughing – not a fight in sight, not an argument anywhere. 

It was more than I could have ever asked for.  Thank you, Santa!

Happy Holidays!



So sorry about the holidays December 20, 2009

hey guys…i know i m not the biggest of blogs yet, and in retrospect maybe starting this the week before thanksgiving into the Christmas holidays was a bad idea….im fairly new to the mommy thing and the girls (ages 6 and 7) still belive in santa…..meaning mommy has to hurry hurry get the shopping done before the kids are home for the winter break. ….then the oldest was sick and home from school….but now the presents are bought and wrapped, the christmas cards sent and the stuff to the out of towners shipped off (hopefully in time for Christmas).     I will be writing more as time allows…..working on a blog about the offensive nature of NYE resolutions and my new NON diet ones……also a big one about culture and food (the idea sprang from the atcha guest blog secret santa gift exchange.)….In the meantime happy holidays, take time to breath in the great baking smells, and don’t let your ED de-rail you.   (the holidays have SO many pitfalls for those in recovery)
