A time of joy.
A time of peace.
A time to reflect.
A time to give thanks.
A time for family and friends.
A very special time of year.
‘Tis The Season
Christmas time, the most wonderful time of the year.
I hope you’re enjoying this holiday season and getting the opportunity to spend it around family and friends, those you care for, laugh with, and love.
Christmas has always been my favorite time of year. Maybe it’s all the festive lights and decorations or perhaps the joy and happiness I associate with it.
Whatever the reason, I love it as much now as I ever have.
Through The Years
Looking back, each Christmas has had it’s own unique story and celebration for me. Not two Christmases have ever been the same.
Sure, I’ve always spent it with family, except for one year, but even still, every year brings with it a new and exciting set of experiences.
I cherish them all.
Whether it’s an ugly sweater theme, or a new dinner recipe my sister or mom cooks up, or a different time we decide to attend Christmas mass, or even when we open gifts. Every year brings with it new excitement and experiences and this year is no different.
I’ve spent Christmases in Massachusetts, San Diego, Las Vegas, Maryland, Idaho, and this year it’ll be Boston with Kristen, my girlfriend. All of them unique, special, and different in their own way.
Enjoy your holiday’s regardless of where, how, and who you spend them with. Be grateful for the opportunity to celebrate another year with family and friends.
Make It Your Own
What’s now become a tradition of mine, every Christmas eve I spend anywhere from 2-3 hours preparing a bolognese sauce from Emeril Lagasse that I fell in love with a few years back. Traditional Christmas meal… probably not. Is it my tradition and does it make me happy… absolutely!
Whatever your traditions are, they’re perfect.
There’s not a wrong or right way to celebrate Christmas and the holidays.
The right way is the way in which you choose to celebrate, whichever way makes you happy, whether it’s cooking a bolognese sauce, making margarita’s and tacos, flying to Hawaii for the holidays, or celebrating the same way you would any other ordinary day. It all works.
What matters most is giving thanks & being grateful for all you have.
My Wish For You
I wish you a very Merry Christmas, spent around those who matter most to you. A Christmas filled with peace, joy, health, and happiness – today and everyday.
Remember to always…. Live well, laugh often, and serve others.
