QTA Christmas Blog Hop Featuring Jayson James






What Christmas Means to Me

When I was initially approached about doing this blog hop, I was excited, being like most authors, the chance for some additional attention was something I could not pass up.  Then I saw that I was going to have to write about Christmas, even worse being what it means to me, then the trouble ensued.  I spent a couple of days wracking my brain on what I could write about, without coming up with anything.  Then I forgot about it, until an email arrived reminding me of my participating.

Beyond the birth of Jesus and everything I grew up learning, Christmas to me is about family and friends.  It is the time of year where we take the time to care and share with each other.   As I sit here, I think about how everything l enjoy with Christmas centers around, food, activities and socializing.  Some of the finer highpoints are going to look at Christmas lights, various meals and assorted gift exchanges.   It is nice to take time to spend with family and friends.

Over the years, my family and I have been working on getting back into celebrating.  A few years ago, we decided to skip Christmas, instead taking a trip down to California, hitting Universal Studios, Disneyland, Sea World and everything else we could find the time to see.   It was so nice to take a break from the craziness of the holiday season and we liked it so much, years later we still have not gotten back into the whole routine.

This year is going to be extra fun, with it being my puppy’s first Christmas.  Having a puppy is very much like having a kid, or so I imagine.  There is the excitement and curiosity.  She is fascinated about everything, which in turn gets me excited.   As with Thanksgiving there will be food and I saw how she enjoyed the many foods we had to enjoy, with Christmas there will be many more.
