Merry Christmas!

It's Jesus' birthday! Too bad it gets all wrapped up and confused with Santa Claus and presents. I get trapped in the very crowded aisle at Target with my kids yelling, "CAN WE GET THIS FOR CHRISTMAS??!" When I ask them if they know what Christmas really is, they always say, "It's when we get presents." That makes me sad. They think it's all about getting things. They don't "get" that it's really about the greatest gift of all.

But...I allow myself to get caught up in all the craziness of it too. Wrapping until the wee hours of the morning, buying "just one more thing," planning what food to take where, etc. It's nice to be with the family and celebrate. I just wish the real reason for celebrating didn't get lost in all the hype sometimes. Santa is a great concept, but not the real reason for the holiday. Oh well...don't want to sound like Scrooge.

I hope everyone has a great Christmas and a safe, Happy new Year!
