“it’s the most wonderful time of the year…” You guessed It, it’s Christmas! I’m sure everyone is a fan of this holiday, but I have to say that I’m it’s number one fan. I as giddy as a toddler on sugar and besides the fact that we celebrate Christmas for the birth of the Messiah, Christmas represents a time of newness, hope and blessings to me.

Growing up, the advent of Christmas meant new clothes, new shoes, a fancy hairdo and great food -Just in case you aren’t aware, I’m a foodie so food always counts as something to be ecstatic about. πŸ˜€ Why these mundane things were so important to me was because for the other 11 months of the year, the possibility of having new clothes was highly unlikely so we looked forward to Christmas as much as the Jews looked forward to the Messiah’s arrival. Thankfully, life is much better, but that doesn’t mean I can’t get all excited about Christmas anymore and boy am I over the moon.
This year should be a little different though ’cause I’ll be cooking more than usual; trying out a few recipes I’ve collected over the course of the year. I’m looking forward to trying new things in general and being more giving is one of them. I mean, what’s Christmas without giving right?
As I look forward to the jolly season I know you do too. Why do you look forward to Christmas and what activities do you intend to do this year?
