With this year being what it’s been why should we follow tradition when it comes to Christmas?
I say let’s just throw all caution to the wind and start the festive season now! Why not? Positivity breeds positivity. Perhaps a little festive cheer and Christmas spirit is exactly what we all need right now to get us through the anxieties, set backs and worries that we have faced through this year. After all, a little Christmas spirit never hurt anyone.
So this past weekend was wet, cold and plain miserable for the majority of the time. With our current lockdown preventing us from doing much else but stay dry and warm indoors, I decided it was time to get out the Christmas tree.
My son and I spent the afternoon building our tree (a real one would never last through to Christmas), unraveling all of our decorations and baubles to carefully decorate its branches, and we even enjoyed some Christmas music to get the atmosphere going.
Our local garden center remains open through lockdown, so we also ventured into their new Christmas section and found some fun and quirky decorations for both inside and outside.
My son was so proud of his efforts, and looking at the tree with all its colours and lights after it was done made us all smile. This is truly the most wonderful time of the year, so why not start the feeling now. It’s time to look forward with hope, and if any time of the year brings hope, its Christmas!
