I love this time of year! The lights, the food, the music, the clothes! I can remember being a kid and getting all dressed up during the holidays. We’re from Florida and when we were lucky enough for it to get cool it was nice to be able to wear sweaters, or even be able to wear dresses and stockings without sweating to death (It’s what made dressing up for Easter a nightmare!). This time of year is the best time to be a kid.
Everyone is in the holiday spirit and there is hope and love in the air. People tend to look for the good this time of year and it makes the overall atmosphere a little brighter and fun. Another reason it’s the best time ignore year to be a kid is that kids are celebrated more during this time of year, and often catered too a little more. Summer is fun, however when you’re a kid you are likely to hear the words “go outside and play!” more than “come on in, would you like a cookie?”
Growing up, even when we didn’t have a lot, I can only look back and see the happiness in the holidays. Thanksgiving was dinner with all the family, Christmas Eve was a candle light church service, then a very early Christmas morning for opening gifts and waking up to a decorated house. We’d then head next door to our grandparents house to tell them about the morning and take them a present. Typically we’d get pizza on Christmas Eve and then have any left over for breakfast because my mom was working on making Christmas Dinner starting early that morning.
We would get all dressed up for dinner and then go out to see a Christmas movie afterwards (or watch one at home). It’s funny how clearly you can see holiday memories sometimes.
