Although I grew up attending Sunday School and celebrating Christmas, I now find that I don’t enjoy the commercialism of the ‘holiday’ (the idea of going into a mall at this time is heart stopping), am not particularly religious and actually love some of the tenents of Festivus. So, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and ‘Happy Festivus, for the Rest of Us’! Ya, you know the episode of Seinfeld that I’m talking ’bout.
P.S. I made this photo of the lovely table settings at my sister’s house, for the holidays. Trust me, in focus, it’s beautiful! 🙂
Hi Ardean, I agree with you, when most of the people think about Christmas, they think about shopping. To me, it’s tradition and family. I buy few gifts ahead of time, nothing fancy, simple stuff with love, no shopping during the holidays. I love your photo, it’s perfect this way! Have a great weekend!

That’s so great that you maintain the tradition and family focus of it! And you shop early – with love – so awesome!
