It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas!

The radio is playing nothing but Christmas songs, Santa has set up his grotto a little way down the street from our store and lights flicker and flash in every window!  Even though town is packed full of people and not all of them are especially festive (read: harassed mothers with children {Santa won't come if you don't behave!} and frustrated last-minute husbands and boyfriends) I absolutely love this last week before Christmas!  Most people are happy and smiling, everyone is busy and the spirit of the holidays is flowing in abundance!

I've always loved Christmas and everything it stands for; spending precious time with family, getting in touch with people you've not seen or heard from in a while, the thought that goes into every carefully bought and wrapped gift and every lovingly signed card...It boggles my mind that there are people who really don't like Christmas!  All the bah humbugs and 'I can't wait for Christmas to be over!' really puzzle me; everything looks beautiful, people are happy, families come together and the public do generous, wonderful things for those who are less fortunate!  It's a really awesome time simply to celebrate those we love and cherish and to have a jolly good time doing so!

This is my *all time* favourite Christmas song; I hear it on the radio and start bopping away, singing all the words and getting that 'Ooh, it's nearly Christmas! *squee!*' feeling in my heart!  I hope when you watch this you'll feel some festive cheer bursting inside you too!

I hope you're all having a swell week so far!  I've been doing a lot of crocheting (gifts for people, woot!), wrapping gifts (not really my forté but I love doing it!) and getting super excited for Sunday!  This week is going to be a busy one, so I'm hoping I get time to post some pictures of what I've been making and the awesome cakes I'm going to bake for our Christmas Eve family celebration!  Take care this week, be happy and thank you for reading!
