I have just been given this new award by Jane. Thank you, Jane!
On accepting this award, I am to name 5 reasons why I love Christmas.
Well, finding reasons to love Christmas is easy. The hard part is limiting it to 5 - which I shan't do!
I love Christmas because of the magic and excitement in the air.
I love the smells of cinnamon, baking, puddings and shortbread;
I love the secrecy and teasing about what people have bought as gifts;
I love the extra thoughtfulness and generosity that seems to abound at this time of year;
I love the sparkle and fun of all the decorations;
I love the music, the carols and the Christmas songs;
I love the wonder on the faces of the young ones, as they absorb it all;
I love the feelings of connectedness that most people share;
I love the getting together of family: sharing the joy, sharing the love, and sharing the contentedness of Christmas.
But most of all, I love the wonder and feelings of peace that settle in my heart and soul at this special time.
And now I pass this award on to others, sending with it, all of those wonderful things.
To Di, who not only feels the spirit of Christmas, but shares it so well, and finds so many wonderful things to glitz up our blogs;
