Christmas is this weekend! Are you ready? Well, whether you are or not, it’s here! So bake those cookies, put the Christmas goose (or turkey or ham) in the oven, and finish wrapping all your gifts.
Christmas may seem like one of those times where, after so much preparation and work, the actual day falls flat. After all, it’s just one day, and it can be over with very quickly. Even if you do a lot on Christmas Eve and then spend all of Christmas Day with family, it’s still just a short 48 hour period. However, it can be a great two days, especially if you get to visit with relatives you don’t see often.
You might also find that those perfect gifts you spent hours shopping for don’t quite go over as well as you hoped. Don’t let this get you down. Remember that it’s the thought that truly counts, and even if people don’t seem as excited as you’d hoped they’d be, they still appreciate the fact that you got them something. Keep this in mind, too, for when you open a gift that doesn’t really excite you.
No matter how quickly or slowly the holiday season has gone, remember the reason we gather: to be together with those we love. We might see them on a daily basis, we might only see them at Christmas, but no matter what, spending the day with them is amazing. Enjoy the great food, the fun conversation, and the spirit of the holidays! Have a very Merry Christmas from all of us here at MyFlorist!
