Tomorrow is the summer solstice and on Tuesday, June 24, the sun will rise one minute later, the day will be one minute shorter and the days will continue to get shorter until Christmastime. I think this is a good time to start getting serious about preparing for Christmas.
"Christmas stays if we don't forget its meaning"
Works for me! A friend was just telling me yesterday about some movies that are on sale at our local Wal-Mart and I thought I might go have a look and pick some up for Christmas gifts!! Tis the season to prepare for the season!!
I am not able to prepare as much as I would like to right now. We are trying to sell out house and buy a bigger house so that has been our main focus right now. Plus I can not buy too much right now, we have enough stuff to haul when we do move. I am however trying new recipes, filling out my Christmas notebook with gift ideas, updating my menu/baking list and outing ideas.
It seems like summer just got here! Its been raining and cold! I love the longer days! And now.....the days are going to get shorter! Geez!!!
I agree...it DOES seem like summer just got here. And it seems like it just started staying light outside longer! I'm not ready to go the other direction. I love having hours of daylight after I get off work!
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.
