This week we’re talking about ‘All I Want for Christmas!’
It’s funny how your expectations for Christmas change as you grow older. When I was a child, the big day was all about excitement; the intense, gut-wrenching hope that Santa would visit, the anticipation of seeing family and friends, and of course the aroma of the roasting turkey that would make my mouth water!
As an adult, I’m the one who provides all this for my family, and that shapes the way I feel about Christmas. Anticipation is replaced by anxiety; will I buy all the presents in time? What time should I put the turkey in the oven? Have I remembered to buy cranberry sauce?
All too often, Christmas can feel more of a chore than anything else. So this year, all I want for Christmas is to slow down and enjoy the company of my family and friends. I’ve bought and wrapped all the gifts, the Christmas grocery shop is ordered, and now all there is to do is sit back and enjoy the anticipation. When the big day arrives, I’m going to pour us all a mug of hot chocolate (with a splash of Baileys added in to the adults’ mugs), put on some Christmas music and watch the delight in the children’s eyes as they tear the wrapping paper off their presents.
So here’s to a merry Christmas for one and all. Thank you so much for joining me on these blog hops this year, and I look forward to sharing more of them with you in 2015!
