Silly Season is Here

Oh Christmas… All of a sudden you are here and I’m still waiting for the year to start. I know we all say it, but I swear the days are passing quicker and the Christmas decorations are getting put up earlier each year. I was very confused in Kmart in October when the Christmas paper had equal sharing room with the Halloween masks near the counters.

Christmas this year is going to be amazing for us. I cannot wait. A lot has changed recently and it feels as though we can finally give our kids a great celebration. That and the fact that our youngest finally gets it, and has been talking to the Santa photos on the fridge since June.

And I know I’m not alone when I say that Christmas totally changed the minute we had kids. They make it so super special, and the little things are the big things to them. The look on their faces when they spot the Elf on the Shelf. The wonder in their eyes when they hear that they are off to see Santa. And the anticipation for the week before when they can’t sleep from excitement.

And one of my favourite things of the festive season are the Christmas concerts – those handmade decorations and the carols, teamed with the sweet out-of-time hand movements they’ve practised for months. And there is always that one kid who clearly doesn’t care and isn’t made for a life on the stage and is just picking their nose.

There was a class of six year olds at a concert I went to, and they were singing “Hark the Herald Angels Sing” at their concert. The line “God and sinners, reconciled” was a tricky one for this age group. One little boy, with a voice that completely drowned out the rest of the choir, happily belted out.

“God and sinners, dressed in style!”

Have a wonderful festive season everyone. I hope the joy is overflowing and the smiles are huge.
