Today is Christmas eve, but what does this mean to you? Do you have any traditions for this day and if so, what are they? It is the day before Christmas, so do you have all your Christmas shopping, holiday decorations, and everything prepared for tomorrow? For years, I did have specific traditions for both Christmas and Christmas eve, but they have changed for a few reasons. Unfortunately, one of the reasons is due to COVID, which we cannot change. The other reason is that my mother lives several states away, but I do think her move was a good move and I believe she is happy with her husband, which makes me happy😊!
During the holidays, I think we should try to be thankful for our lives. We should not have regrets and should try to focus on what we are grateful for. It is sad to think some so many people do not have a loving family, a roof over their heads, or food on the table. To know so many people are homeless, especially when the temperatures have taken a turn towards bitter cold. It is shocking how quickly the weather has changed and how insanely cold it has become, even in the south where I live. With how cold it is now, the only thing that would make sense is to have snow on the ground and give us a white Christmas!
Whether you are in the United States or another country, I hope your holiday weekend is wonderful and you stay safe because COVID is still around. Thankfully, things are much better with COVID than they have been in the past few years and most people are vaccinated. I may not have left the house much over the past few years, but I am glad that my husband and I have not had to deal with how awful COVID makes people feel. Some people might say that we have been overly cautious, but with a deadly virus infecting and killing so many I do not think you can ever be too cautious. We are planning a snowboarding trip for my husband’s birthday at the beginning of January, so we are planning to get the 2nd COVID booster next week to protect us from the virus.
Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas and that you enjoy the weekend! I look forward to reading your comments and I will respond as quickly as I can. If you must drive far to visit with your family, please drive safely because I am sure traffic is going to be crazy. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!
