It's the MOST wonderful time of the yearrrrrr.......

Gosh I love Christmas. Have I mentioned that before? ;o)

Today is Christmas Eve...when you are a child, it is the LONGEST day and night of every year. The anticipation of what will be waiting for you on Christmas morning is almost unbearable. Will Santa bring me all I asked for??? For adults, it is a day of preparation, cooking and more preparation. Most exciting indeed!

As Catholics, today, we do not eat meat. Tonight will be a feast of fish, fish and more fish. We will eat till we nearly pop and then snack all evening while we watch Christmas specials and play board games. Tonight, we will each take turns with Grace before meals, thanking God for all of the wonderful blessings in our lives, especially, for the gift of His only Son, Jesus Christ...the real reason behind all of our celebratory gorging. In our society, it's easy to forget that Jesus is the Reason for the Season.

Tomorrow morning, we, along with millions of others, will gather in our family room, still in our pajamas, opening our gifts that we have so tediously thought about, purchased and wrapped. Within mere moments, all of the preparation will be out the window and the gifts will be done for another year. The kids will play with their new toys, I will trek out to the local gas station to pick up my Timmy's (my regular Tim Horton's is closed on Christmas Day) and we will spend quality time together, eating and drinking excessively...oh it is INDEED the most wonderful time of year.

May your Christmas Eve and Christmas morning be as wonderful as I expect mine to be. Pin It
