Taking to long!
 
For many years now, I find myself wanting the holidays more and longer, to me itís the only time of the year I feel some sort of peace and happiness. Lately as I get older I feel the spirit leaving more and more. I listen to Christmas music year round and watch the countdown every moment until I see the 1st snow. Truthfully, I wish it was Aug-December in my life only. Does anyone else feel the same way? :celebrate:

Oh Paul, that's sad that you only feel peace and happiness in the holidays.....I feel you can try to do your hobbies and things you like to do...What do you mean the spirit is leaving more and more? That you get less satisfaction out of holidays? I'm glad you enjoy listening to Xmas music year round :)

I do love everything about the holidays, but there is a bit of fun with the lead in from the earlier months, cant pass up a Christmas in July celebration!

Welcome Paul. I understand how you feel.

For me it is important to have other things to look forward to during the year. I try to look forward and find things to ''celebrate'' within each season. Simple things like sitting out in the garden till late on a summer's evening with a good book.

These things help to distract from the long wait and when the season finally arrives I am excited from the anticipation and every seasonal activity feels ''new'' again.

When I do need a Christmas fix though , coming here is great :) it's like a little secret Christmas retreat .......
