This Week...Full of the Christmas Spirit

 

Can you believe that Christmas is in just a few days?  Since Thanksgiving, it has been non-stop!  

 

Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas. Calvin Coolidge

What I love about this time of year is how happy everyone is. It feels good to know that the joyful spirit of Christmas is alive and well. 

 

When you give up yourself, that's when you will feel the true spirit of Christmas. And that's giving that's serving others and that's when you feel fulfilled. Joel Osteen

And I don’t know if it’s something new for 2019 or the fact that I’m back in Texas, but people are freely saying Merry Christmas instead of tripping over their tongues trying to be politically correct. 

 

Christmas is not a story of hope. It is hope. Craig D. Lounsbrough



Wish me Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, or Happy Kwanzaa or whatever. I won’t mind. Because what I will hear is that you’re wishing me all the joys of the season.

If you can't find the spirit of the holidays in your heart, you'll never find it under a tree.   Michael Holbrook




Larry and I spent the week baking all kinds of cookies. We’ve taken some to friends and will take them to all of our holiday family dinners.  When I need something to get me in the holiday spirit, all I have to do is pull out all of my baking “gear” and start making Christmas cookies. 



The best gift you can open this Christmas season is your own heart.

I hope that you’ve found your own Spirit of the Season. 

 

Have a joyous weekend!

OMG Myrl Jeffcoat even though I've already eaten dinner, your menu sounds so good. I especially love the roasted Brussel sprouts. 

Grant Schneider I'm all into gift bags when I can. I really don't like making bows.

Debbie Holmes I read your post, and I do agree. I wish we could give everyone a happy holiday (and beyond.)

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD I saw a headline where an actor or comedian was called to HR because she said "Merry Christmas" to a staff member. On another note, did your mom watch any football today??? My Texans won!

Ron and Alexandra Seigel we have taken "not offending" someone and being politically correct too far in my opinion. You can't offend me by wishing me joy or peace or love in any language or religious greeting. 

Will Hamm it is always sad to think of others who are suffering when we have so much.

Merry Christmas is rolling off my tongue everywhere I go and the reaction is surprise, followed by joy.  Will never forget the first year I worked in real estate.  The gal that owned the local subway was a first generation immigrant to the US.  She did not celebrate Christmas, yet I brought her Christmas cookies and wished her a Merry Christmas.  She shared with me, as I noticed my sandwiches getting more and more stuff when I ordered them, that the gesture I made had really made her feel "at home" here in the US.

Kathy this time of the year everyone seems to act a little bit nice (except for politicians), and it is good to hear Merry Christmas again

No baking for me this year. Rick is making bread, though.

I'm doing the salad and some candied walnuts and a holiday cheese ball.
