So, its almost Christmas, its crazy I know , which also means the year is almost over. O.M.G. , lets not go there. Anyways, I always wonder why people go, shall we say "mad" during this time of year, I mean seriously, is it that serious if you don't get your uncle's wife's brother's girlfriend something?
I always tell my self that I'm not going to go crazy like everyone else, that I'm not going to get mad when the third person in a row takes my parking space, that I'm not going to get mad when I see the long line at the register, but this Christmas" madness" its like a magnet that pulls you in no matter how hard you try to fight it. You are probably asking yourself "Did I succeed this year?" negative.
I went to Target yesterday with my mom and I told myself that I wasn't going to go crazy buying stuff, after all this is not what Christmas is suppose to be about ( more on that a bit later). Anyways, so we are at Target getting a few things and when I say a few things, I really do mean a few things, we are in a recession people. First, let me tell you that I have never ever seen Target so packed , it was crazy. It took us just 30 minutes just to find parking, crazy I know. Fast forward 3 hours and I had a migraine the size of Texas.
Please don't misunderstand me, I love this time of year too. I love the getting together with family and friends, I love the food, the weather and yes even the shopping ( side note-I will go to the store that sells everything for everyone , yes you guessed it, like Target I refuse to go to the mall). I think its important to remember what we are celebrating. We are celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ and if you celebrate other holidays like Hanukkah or Kwanzaa, I'm sure those holidays are more about being with family than buying gifts right?
Let's try to remember the reason for the season. My reason for the season is to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ and to give Thanks to God for all of my blessings.
So, on that note, Merry Christmas.
God bless always,
