This award is just not about Christmas. Christmas should be in our hearts everyday of our lives, in everything we do, say and feel. Christmas isn't about how many presents are under the tree, what gift should I get this person, how much should I spend, going crazy at the stores, waiting in lines, stress of buying, wrapping, what to cook, what to wear to this party and that party, etc...The Spirit of Christmas is about LOVE! Love this world desperately needs from each and everyone of us! The Spirit of Christmas is about GIVING. Not gifts...Giving of ourselves, helping one another get through the bad and good times! The Spirit of Christmas is about Truth. Truth in ourselves, our beliefs, whatever they are! The Spirit of Christmas is about LIVING! Living a life that encompasses Compassion. Compassion for every human being, animal, nature and our earth.
Just think how this world would be if we had the Spirit of Christmas in our hearts EVERYDAY OF OUR LIVES!
May we all strive to live everyday of our lives with the Spirit of Christmas in our hearts!
As the King himself said "Oh Why Can't Everyday Be Like Christmas."

www. oldchristmaslights.com and here are some the photographs from that website. I don't know about the rest of you, but vintage photographs tells such stories. You can see it in their eyes, how they pose for the picture and wish that you could jump in the photograph to ask them what they are thinking about!
I remember waking up and seeing dolls under the tree like this picture...even now as an adult, I still want my dolls under the Christmas tree...You are never to old to play with dolls!
What is she thinking about?
This is just a charming photograph. The family bringing home their Christmas Tree! Even the dog is involved!

The snow turned to freezing rain, so the trees all have natural icicles on them! It's just so beautiful and I love sitting outside on the porch and listening to the branches crackling against the wind. We are getting another storm tonight, but this storm is going to be ALL SNOW! I will have to wake up early and get my snow angels in before anyone gets up and starts making their snowman!

There was this unbelievable store in Emmaus, PA called "Patches." It's no longer there, but we have Maximilien to remind us of that charming store that once was.
