Happy Holiday's, I Think.

Well, for those who know me, I am not a big holiday person. Especially Christmas! I don't enjoy all of the commercial pressures of the holiday season and since I do not believe in or celebrate the religious meaning of the holiday it is just another day. I did get excited about the Winter Solstice on Sunday. That means that the day's will slowly begin to get longer again. If I was going to celebrate the season in a more spiritual way I would definitely choose the Pagan and more earthly philosophy. Don't get me wrong, I do believe in a higher energy and the spirit with-in but just can't push myself into the realm of organized religion.

It is a great time to spend with family and that is a gift. My boys are coming home so the family will be together again. Happy Holiday's! Really, I mean it.

What I've always enjoyed about the holidays has been family togetherness and an excuse for a party, even if just a little one. As a parent of four, I've always been sure to emphasize just that. Of course we talk about why a holiday is celebrated, but "organized religion" has never been a prominant part of any of our festivities. That will be for them to deside. I just give the info, and the holiday memories of family, food, love, fun, and conversation.
Happy Happy Holidays.
