My Christmas feeling have really changed over the years especially since I have become born from above. But, my most favorite thing about my Christmas is I truly believe it is a special time for miracles and wonders to be manifested in everyones lives. I also enjoy living alive Christmas trees. I appreciate a living Christmas tree to the max. My finances have under gone such dtrastic changes that it has been years since I have even been able to purchase so much as a Chrustnas card. But, I still love and enjoy this special time of year as a time for miracles and wonders to be manifested because of the grace and love of our Lord and Savior and Master.

I love that I can share the Christmas story with believers and Non-believers alike. No one seems to get offended by it. Its amazing. I love the Christmas Carols about the birth of Jesus. Its just a very special time of the year.
I love to use this special time of the year to celebrate the birth of Jesus. I buy 95% of my gifts before December. It is not uncommon for me to buy several Christmas gifts as early as June. It is a great way to spread out your "gift giving power". I do this mostly as a way to focus on God rather than buying one gift after another.
I only have a few things to order and my Christmas shopping is done for this year! Shopping early reduces the stress around this already busy time of the year. I love that I have more time for God, my family, and not have to try to cram tons of shopping within 29 days (the amount of time between Thanksgiving & Christmas).
WHAT I LIKE THE MOST ABOUT CHORISTER'S:
#1 Spending time with God by doing special spiritual traditions with my husband.
