I am doing everything in my power to NOT get the after Christmas blues!!! There has to be a way to keep the spirit alive all year round...starting right here!!!
I feel better already after visiting this site today!!
I posted this on another thread earlier about how I'm trying to NOT get the blues:
It was back to work for me today - I had 11 days off (and it was completely wonderful!!) & I think it is harder to come back after 11 days of hanging out at home, coming, going, people stopping over, eating, drinking, being merry, late nights, pretty much doing whatever we want, no schedule, etc. than it is to come back after going away on vacation!! But I am hoping to have the days between the holidays off again next year. I totally enjoyed it!! I went to Ben Franklin over the weekend & bought a bunch of snowmen 50% off to put up when I take down my decorations, & I bought some lighted garland (white/clear lights) for $2.50 to put up on the mantle or around our banister. Though I am not looking forward to taking my Chrsitmas stuff down, I am looking forward to getting my snowmen & clear lights out! I also bought 6 Christmas dvd's at the grocery store - they were $1.99 each & most of them have 2 Christmas movies on them! They are all movies I have never seen (or heard of) before, but they sound really good. I think most of them are older movies. I am grabbing at anything that will help keep my Christmas spirit alive!! Thanks to this wonderful webiste I don't think it will be all that hard to do!!
Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace & goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.
