OHHHH the excitement!

Today has always been my favourite day of the year...even more favourite than Christmas Day. The excitement about tomorrow has always been so amazing for me.

My Mom and Dad made EVERY single Christmas SO special and I try to do that with my boys. I get them SO worked up and excited about their presents, saying things like, "OH MY GOODNESS YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE MY GIFTS!!!" and "OOOOOH I wonder what Santa will bring!!" They get all excited and can't WAIT for tomorrow.

We will let them open one gift tonight and the rest will be waiting for them tomorrow morning. I remember the butterflies in my tummy every Christmas Eve as I lay down to TRY to sleep. Truly, it was all I could do to stay in bed, but stay in bed I must because if I didn't, surely, Santa would skip our house!

I was 12 when I realized that the man ina red suit that we knew as Santa was not a real man afterall. I caught my parents bringing our gifts from Santa out from under their bed. I remember being so disappointed that Christmas Eve. But, I still believe in the SPIRIT of Christmas. There IS a Santa, but he's not a man in a red suit...he is the wonderful memories, blessings and spirit of giving that IS Christmas.

I have another post about Boy Oneder and his teacher giving away the Santa secret, but I will save it for later. For now, I will listen to my Christmas carols, sip on my wine (after noon of course) and revel in the awesomeness that is Christmas Eve. Pin It
