10 Things That Create The Enchantment of The Holidays – updated from December 2018

Enchantment what an awesome word. Wish we could box it up and let everyone experience a bit of it. Here are some of my thoughts on that enchantment for the young and the old.

  • Big shining eyes of small children filled with wonder.
  • Magic of making holiday treats-frosting cookies, licking the frosting off your hands.
  • Making kieffles.  Those who have been around our family understand.  Handing down a tradition.
  • Decorating the tree and house- Being allowed to finally put ornaments on the tree yourself.
  • Fascination associated with believing. You hate see it leave.
  • Learning the true meaning of Christmas-the baby Jesus in the manager.
  • Secrets –being let in on a grown up secret and showing everyone you can keep a secret.
  • Wrapping gifts- having your own wrapping paper, tape, ribbon and tag. Carrying your present so proudly to put under the tree.
  • Company-waiting for grandparents, family and friends to come. Enjoying being at home and having fun.
  • Sharing – Taking dinner to someone who lives alone, sending cards, getting to make your own cards to mail, going through your clothes and toys and donating them to a thrift store.
  • Admiration, praise and respect for those in the military and their families.  Praying for all of them.

It really is a wonderful time of the year.  Especially if it snows right around Christmas.   Christmas Eve always looks so pretty and peaceful if it snows just before Santa comes.  Like a live picture card.  No  ice please.

Always will remember the year when my mother had redecorated the bathroom in pink and black.  I know, but it honestly looked pretty good.  She was a delightful lady.  Anyway I digress her Christmas present from our father that year was a brand new pink toilet seat, in its place of honor under the tree.  It brought smiles to all our faces for many a year.

Memories are such fun!  Happy Holidays to each and every one.#families#wonder#ornaments#wrappinggifts#wrappingbiggifts#donation.
