My Pretend Christmas Day

Growing up in the Northeast, part of my vision for Christmas charm involves snow. There is nothing like a white Christmas but it does not always happen, and this year was one of those years.

In those instances, I hold the hope that it will snow some time before I take down my decorations and then I pretend that it is Christmas all over again, minus most of what happens on Christmas day. I still have my lights and my music and even foods. I also have peace and appreciation because all of the hoopla is over.

Today it snowed…yippee!

So, the lights and music are on, I still have cards to write and send, there are still foods that I missed out on making and I am in “pretend” mode.

It’s wonderful!

While the cooking shows are sharing recipes for healthy salads, we are making popcorn with lots of butter as we enjoy watching them.

In a few days, I will have to accept the new year, healthy salads and all of its busy-ness and responsibilities, but today it is Christmas.

Again.
