By now, I’m sure most of you have undecked those halls. I get it. I understand. It feels so good to clean up and put everything away, fresh start for a fresh year. We have too, well…mostly.
Christmas spirit. Spreading goodwill towards man. Kindness, peace, and love to all. Why should that be crammed into just one month a year? Shouldn’t we be on our happiest and jolliest of behaviors all year round?
We get so focused on the list, the shopping, the baking, the wrapping, the traveling, that we all forget to sit back and enjoy the sparkle of the holiday. Christmas is here and gone in the blink of an eye, making us wish it wasn’t over already.
Why does it have to end? Does it have to?
Actually no, no it doesn’t. The sparkle lives on in the Soby household.
This is what our house looks like tonight, as I type.
No really is does, well except the lights blink and race each other, like they are on a serious caffeine high.
I’m sure the fact that our house still glows with joy on January 22, might be annoying to some, in particular, my neighbors, but I love it. It makes me smile and chuckle each night when they kick on. I’m not the only one….. The snowmen are smiling too.
