I love to see the excitement in people’s faces at Christmas time. I even like all the hustle and bustle.
I enjoy seeing the transformation from the mundane to the magical. I love all the lights. I love the decorations. I love the aromas in the air. I am caught up in the magic of Christmas.
The Christmas season helps me to realize how important it is for me to celebrate life. Sometimes, I get too caught up in the day-to day-activities of regular routines. It is great that I can pull myself out of the ‘doing’ and give myself permission to just be a little kid for a moment.
I love to see all the new decorations that creative people come up with each year. It is fun to add new decorations while still enjoying some of the old ones that bring back fond memories.
It tickles me to see the reaction of children sitting on Santa’s lap.
I love to see the costumes, crazy hats, and tee shirts people wear during this time of the year. I find it totally healthy to laugh at myself for some of my outfits. I love ugly sweater parties. Any time to stop taking myself so seriously is a good thing.
“I am becoming such a Christmas Elf!” I giggle an elfish laugh and grin. I may even treat myself to some hot cocoa and a Christmas cookie.
Today, I feel the Christmas Magic within. I allow myself to be transformed by the magic of Christmas as I take time to thoroughly enjoy the holidays.
