Have a Holly Jolly…

Christmas is almost here!

I am a big geek about Christmas. I love everything about Christmas. I know that Christmas is about Jesus.  But I have to confess… I also really love the other side of Christmas; the things that have nothing to do with Jesus. The lights. Wrapped gifts. Over-the-top decorations. The hustle and bustle at EVERY store. Christmas music- all the time. Parties. Excessive baking. Christmas movies.

I love it.
The unfortunate side of Christmas is that I married a man who is not the biggest fan of all of the Christmas hoopla. Too bad for him. Inevitably he will spend a lot of time in the next week rolling his eyes at me.

So… in honor of my favorite time of year… A series of Christmas favorites.
