I love the first of November. For me, it means all Ghosts and Goblins have left, the campaign advertisements have ceased and the Sugarplums are beginning to stir (soon to be dancing) in our heads.
November means the month of giving thanks and counting our blessings.
There will soon be Christmas music consuming the radio waves, our children will begin practicing their songs for the annual school play, there will be many baked treats adorning the isles in the workplace, Elves will be making their way to into our home creating chaos and getting into mischief, and there will be tasty cooked fowl served for dinners across the land.
We will be making our wish lists for Santa as we scroll each page of the toy catalogs for this year’s best gifts.
This year, I am hoping that my family can inspire you and your family and friends to enjoy these Eight Weeks of Christmas.
The Eight Weeks of Christmas is not about spending a lot of money nor creating more stress for you or your family. Rather this is about enjoying each week leading up to Christmas, spending time together with people you care about and making memories for a lifetime.
