5 More Sleeps
I've been working some seriously long and crazy hours in retail this week. It seems 'everyone' has now realised Christmas Day is only 5 sleeps away! While the shopping centre has become a congested space, I ponder what Christmas really means. For me Christmas is about spending time with family, the extended family and eating! The tradition of having lunch together continues (we sit down to lunch at about 2pm). We usually don't start on the sweet things until early evening.
My boys now 7 and 5 are right into the swing of enjoying the lead up to Christmas. The anticipation of what Santa will bring. The joy of having a decorated Christmas tree with lights standing in the corner of the lounge room.
It's a very special time of year for those fortunate enough to share with family and friends.
