Christmas In July

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire

If retailers can have Christmas in July then why can’t I join the party? Today, in the middle of the warmest season of the year in the Northern Hemisphere let’s dream about that magical time of year. As we begin our adventure, let’s imagine a softly falling snow flurry or two drifting down to blanket the ground.

As we look outside the window we hear our fireplace crackling, and the aroma of Christmas cookies floating out of the oven and into our noses. We have a cup of creamy hot chocolate in our hand and some cozy knitted slippers on our feet courtesy of Grandma from a Christmas long ago. Today we are taking it all in without a hint of worry about crossing names off our list. No lines at the register or traffic hassles to deal with just the good things about the season.

Ah yes, Christmas is just a few days away and all the shopping is done and now the relaxation can begin. Thoughts about the sledding down the hill with the family, making snowmen and playing games in the snow. Building snow forts and having good-natured snow ball fights with the neighborhood kids. Gently moving back and forth in the rocking chair just adds to the calming effect of the warm milk. Did I mention the cookies are now out of the oven cooling and Mrs. Claus brought one over for me to nibble on? I could easily sit here until I drift off to sleep for a wee little nap. Life is good…

Good night.
