Thinking Christmas

Wednesday, December 4, 2013

In response to a previous column: Yes I am a "Christmas creep" and a happy one.

I have several reasons for this. One reason is that I have an extremely large family and planning before Thanksgiving is a necessary. Than I am better able to enjoy the Christmas activities with family, friends and at church.

Listening to Christmas songs and hymns many times reminds me of the multitude of ways in which I am thankful, especially the celebration of the birth of the Christ child. So, I start early.

Extravagance is not part of my gift giving, but LOVE is, as the recipient is told.

Therefore, whenever the Spirit moves you, have a merry and blessed Christmas from Mary, the "Christmas creep."
