I can be a little “grinch-y” over the holidays. I like Christmas. I like December 24 and 25. Those days are Christmas. Everything else is December in my book.
I spent some time with my mom’s family last weekend. We traveled down to Gustavus for Christmas in Christ Chapel. I was in the bell choir in college and got a chance to say hi to my former director. He did a wonderful job with the Reformation theme and yet still tying in the advent season.
This week I’m going to a wrestling match….and not high school wrestling. I don’t exactly know what to expect, but I’m sure it will be interesting! I have a pizza night with friends planned, I’m going to see the orchestra perform Harry Potter, and it sounds like I’ll be at both of the last 2 Vikings home games for the regular season. Plus Pitch Perfect 3 comes out, and I already have plans to see that in theaters before I start a long break from work.
I am so glad I’ve got good activities planned to end 2017. The year gave me a lot of surprises. I have no idea where 2018 will take me. I’m looking for some changes. But for right now I’ll enjoy what I have and try to share a little December cheer.
How long do you celebrate Christmas? All month? 2 days? 1 day?
p.s. are you shocked I posted not on Sunday?
