The Christmas Season

Although it's really early to be decorating for Christmas, I just can't help myself. I love Christmas time. I love the weather, the family time, the food, the music, the smell and most of all I love the reminder of Jesus' birth. God loved me so much that He sent His one and only sinless Son to become man so He could die on the cross for my sins. I am very thankful for His sacrifice!
John 3:16
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

I love Christmas too! I plan to start decorating as soon as we get back from Bs. As. at the end of the month :-)

Christmas! We always decorate the day after Thanksgiving. I can't wait! The smells, decorations, memories from past Christmas', and of course the opportunity to celebrate Jesus' birth.

Hugs!

Christmas is just the best season! There is so much to love about it and just such a great spirit everywhere you go! Nothing beats it!

I, too, love Christmas. However I appreciate Thanksgiving more than any other holiday for reasons: 1) It is the only holiday that is strictly American. 2) It reminds us of the providential protection of God upon our nation. 3) It reminds us of the uniquely Christian values on which our nation was founded. 4) It is the least commercialized and most family oriented of our holidays.
