Recently, I noticed I had missed a gutter clip when I took down my Christmas Lights in January. I made a mental note to take it down, but now I think I’ll leave it up. With all the nastiness in the world today, a little reminder that a season is coming that promotes peace on earth is a good thing. Plus, that’s one less gutter clip I’ll have to put up in December.
I’ll admit it, I’m a Christmas Junkie. I don’t create a light display you can see from space, but I do like to have the house nicely decorated. A few years ago, I discovered Organized Christmas. This website has helped me put my obsession into a highly structured checklist. Last year, I experienced a very well-organized and relaxed Christmas. Even with the Lambert Family Christmas Eve being held at our house. To cap it off, it SNOWED on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day! It doesn’t get much better than that! However, I’m sure my family members (who had to crawl their way through unplowed streets) weren’t laughing all the way.
When I saw the clip on the gutter, I was reminded that the Christmas Spirit is always there, although sometimes you have to look very hard to see it. I know what you’re thinking, “This guy is crazy! It’s only July!” I know, but the back-to-school items are already on the shelves and that means Halloween ghosts and goblins can’t be far behind. On my blog The Brown Parachute Club, I have written two articles with a Christmas theme. They are about appreciating your life, as well as transforming it. Being George Bailey and Being Ebenezer Scrooge. If you can’t bring yourself to look at them now, please bookmark the links for later. When you do get a chance to read the articles, please leave a comment if you enjoyed them. Thanks!
