Christmas... How Do You Celebrate?

by ©Peggy Gabrielson

Christmas is probably one of my favorite holidays to celebrate. 

I love the music and caroling, and have been known to play Christmas music all year long. I have some that are my favorites, like 'Frosty the Snowman'. I will repeat this song over and over,  While our grandchildren when they were younger  would 'skate' in socks along our hardwood floors!  

Decorating and the Christmas tree, while there are no facts it seems to be that the Germans started this popularity. My father always had the tree up the day after Thanksgiving. To this day I do the same and my daughter has followed this family tradition.

Gifts this year... A lot of emphasis are on handmade, supporting smaller businesses 'mom and pops'. What are you giving? Knitting, sewing, painting, beading for friends and family?  However and whatever you celebrate, remember to give from your heart!

Inspiring Creative Minds!
