Tis the Season

How many of you have all your Christmas decorations up? I'm not one of you, but this weekend is slated just for that.

However, I noticed some people had their trees up by the middle of November and have you noticed how the stores start playing Christmas music and have their decorations up practically the day after Halloween?

I love Christmas as much as the next person, but it seems to me with all the running around, buying gifts, food, all in preparation for the season, sometimes we lose sight of what it's truly about.  Not that we do it on purpose, but sometimes the meaning gets lost in the shopping cart that is overflowing with gifts.  For me, I'm going to try extra hard this year to remember -- it's about giving, not of material gifts, but of one's self.

Have a great day
