It’s Christmas Eve - Why Are You Reading This Blog?
Matter of fact, why am I writing it?
Whether or not you celebrate Christmas, this is a great time to relax and unwind. Nothing will be open tomorrow - I don’t even think McDonald’s is open. Take that back - WalMart will probaly be open. But it’s time to sit back and not work for a day and think about the year past and the year ahead. The new year is always so full of promise and hope.
And why am I writing a blog post on Christmas Eve? Well, not only because I enjoy writing and it’s my job, but because I love communicating with you. We have our family Christmas tonight an our grandchildren - ages 7 and 5 - will be over the top with excitement. I love seeing their faces and the impatience with which they spend their day:
Is it time to open presents yet?
After x, then we’ll open presents.
Why do we have to wait?
Well, let’s get going then!
(It’s the only night of the year when their parents don’t have to force them to go to bed.)
If you are going to be with family this Christmas Eve, lower your expectations and just have fun. If you aren’t, then call or visit someone who is alone. Don’t email or text; be more personal than that.
My best wishes for you on this most joyous and holy of nights.
