Living through the Holidays. Is Christmas Really Worth It?
As always, ours was an evening at church, followed by driving around looking at people's Christmas lights. When we returned home, we exchanged family gifts under the tree. Then we all collapsed in bed with the whole visions of sugar plumbs thing going on while we awaited the arrival of the Big Guy.
Christmas day as always, started with stockings and then a flurry of paper as gifts were unwrapped. It's always the same, isn't it? So much preparation, and it's over so fast. It's kind of like a wedding, right? But a wedding is easier to prepare for. Tee Hee.
Do you ever wonder if it is all worth it?
When I do, I think of all the work my parents did to make Christmas special. I think of all the times Santa tripped over the fire grate and tracked soot all over the house. I think of the elf footprints in my carpet when they checked up to make sure I was good. I think of those amazing meals and how exciting and magical Christmas was.
Is it worth all the work to me, as it obviously was to my parents?
When I see the magic and wonder in my kids eyes Christmas morning... when they get the presents that they asked Santa for that I never new about... Yes. No matter what I had to go through to make that happen.
What crazy stuff did you do this year to make your kid's Christmas extra magical?
