I’ve spent the last 7 years wishing I could go to sleep in the middle of November and wake up in the middle of January so that I could simply miss Christmas and New Year.  I have always battled with Christmas, suffering from varying degrees of depression over the season (I know thousands have the same problem).  Some years were easier than others, but after the separation and subsequent divorce, all or any little interest I was able to muster in previous years just could not be found.

 
This year, I suddenly am in the mood.  I don’t know what it is or why.  For the first time in forever I’m buying decorations and bought items to make a table display and a little tree for the side table and a wreathfor the front door.
 
I am enjoying feeling ‘happy’ and watching the season unfold.
 
Blessed season to you and yours.

    That is wonderful news. I am still waiting, after many years, to feel the Christmas feeling ~ not sure when or where I lost it.

    How wonderful that you are preparing to enjoy the season. I hope that its a sign that you are emerging from the dark place you would go to during the season.
    You are so lovely….you deserve to experience joy!
