So now that the greatest holiday of the year is officially behind us, I feel it’s OK to actually care about Christmas. I used to be one of these “last minute” guys that waited to do my shopping on Christmas Eve. But as I’ve gotten older, there is something exciting about Christmas. I’m not talking about the kind of excitement you have as a kid, it’s a different type of anticipation. Possibly because this is my first Christmas as a dad, which is AWESOME! Possibly because I’m looking forward to attending a few Christmas parties with some close friends. Possibly because I’m looking forward to visiting Hershey Park’s Candy Lane. Possibly because I now appreciate GIVING gifts way more than I look forward to receiving gifts. Whatever it is… I am thankful it’s that time of year.
Over the weekend we put up our Christmas lights, our Christmas tree and all of our little Christmas decorations that go in and around the house. Last night, my wife made some cookies and then after Naomi fell asleep we played a few games while listening to random Christmas music on the public advertising channel. (Our version of XM!) Now all we need is SNOW!
So… as you sink into the “Most Wonderful Time of Year”… I ask you the question: What is your favorite Christmas song? It can be an old classic like White Christmas, or maybe a newer one like Bebo Norman’s Come and Worship.
I’ll go first…
