I absolutely love Christmas! It is by far my favorite holiday. I love the music, the festivities, the feeling of good cheer, excitement, and absolute celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. He is the reason for the season. This year I was able to celebrate it even more by playing Christmas music on the piano in a nursing home....my weekly gig and by participating in fun filled Jingle All The Way 5K. I love the feeling of our community coming together at this time of year to help others in need. I wish this Christmas spirit would last throughout the year.
What I don't like is the Black Friday and Cyber Monday and sales promotions which promote commercialism in this blessed holiday. Christmas is a celebration of AMAZING LOVE not the acquisition of Christmas presents.
Lord, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.
