Who am I kidding? I FAILED!!!!!!!!!!!!
*sigh* oh well. I'll try again. Maybe.
On a happier note, today begins the first week of Advent. Well, actually yesterday was the first Sunday of Advent, but this begins the first DAY. and that makes me absurdly happy. I've been feeling Christmas-y since..... Wellll, October I'd say, maybe September. Ever since my best friend up the street started listening to Christmas CD's. Which she always starts playing months in advance because she adores Christmas too. Tell you what guys, listening to "Oh Holy Night" before Halloween could make anyway crazy. And knowing you have a Christmas Present ready before Halloween, that puts you on a Christmas high. So now, finally the season has begun.
Advent is my favorite time of the year. I love the anticipation, the feeling of expectancy that hangs in the air. I love all the preparing that take place as the family gets ready for Christmas. I love putting out the Nativity scene for the first time and setting up the Advent wreath to count down the Sundays until Christmas. I love the traditions we have. One of my favorite is the Nativity scene. We never set all the statues out at once. We space out the statues, putting another one (or two) in every week, until, by Christmas Day, the Baby Jesus is the only statue left. We put him in on Christmas morning.
I just love Christmas.
That's all I have for you tonight! Have a lovely evening and enjoy the first days of the Christmas Season!! I'll leave you with one of my favorite Christmas Songs. its so Perty :)
