Does anyone else feel a little lighter now that the Christmas season is upon us? And don’t think about what you ate on Thanksgiving or since then. We all know our pants our tighter.
I’m talking about walking with a little hop in your step. Feeling a little elation within your heart. Enchantment. ‘Tis the Season to be Jolly…Am I right? You know what I’m talking about? Okay good. Insert Charlie Brown soundtrack here _____.
I know I’ve been a little redundant with these happy lists… But I’m HAPPY, OKAY. And I’ve had quite a bit of coffee this morning, so bear with me. I have written Christmas Happy Lists every year since I was in high school. We used the list as part of our Christmas card once. I just love all the joy this season brings.
Here are some things about December and the Holiday Season that make me happy…I’m sure a few of these will resonate with you!
