Every Day is Christmas

Standard

I just love this time of year!  I’ve been listening to Christmas music for a long time now but I can be caught humming Jingle Bells any time of year.  I just love the happy spirit of this time of year.  I was just thinking it was too bad it was only during this time of year and then I heard this song called “Every Day is Christmas” by Colbie Caillat on her album Christmas in the Sand.  I couldn’t find the song on youtube so I am just going to post some of the lyrics.  You can read them all here

January always brought me down
All the magic of December
Is like a circus leaving town
All I wanna do is to follow it around
Cause everybody wishes it was Christmas all year ’round

To wake up every morning
With a present in my bed
That’s how I’ve been feeling
Since the moment we first met

And I don’t need the snow to fall
And I don’t need the light to shine
And I don’t need a mistletoe
Cause I’ll still kiss you all the time

We don’t have to take a sleigh ride
For our hearts to race inside
And I still get as excited
When we go to sleep at night
Every day is Christmas as long as
Every day you are mine

Anyway, when I heard that song I thought, “wow, what  great idea”.  Anyone can give a “Christmas” gift any time of the year.  So I am going to hold on to that thought and when I start to miss the spirit of Christmas I’m going to make a gift for someone and treat it like a random act of kindness.  I can give it to someone when they least expect it and brighten their day.

I also thought of something else.  I am making a shawl for my step-mother.  I bought this really pretty warm pink yarn called Spa by Natually Caron.  The color is called Rose Bisque and as it is working up it feels so soft and silky.  It is a lighter weight yarn crocheted up loosely so it will be a nice light shawl perfect for those chilly nights in Georgia during the winter.  Well, when I bought the yarn it was on sale and I didn’t know how much I would need so I grabbed extra.  I will have enough to make another one so I thought it would be nice to take one to a local nursing home to give to someone who doesn’t get many visitors or gifts from loved ones.  I know some people who work there so I’ll ask them to recommend someone who needs a little love.  I am almost finished with the one for my step mom so as soon as I get it mailed off I’ll get started on the next one.

Happy 1st day of December everyone.  Only 24 more days until Christmas.

And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be. And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren. For with God nothing shall be impossible. And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.

  1. I just love this time of year, too. I get to feeling just bubbly with joy! Love the songs and the music and that people try to focus more on loving each other and kindness. Seems like people’s hearts are maybe open a little more, you know? Great idea to keep it going! I especially love the giving a gift to somebody at the nursing home! 🙂 Merry Christmas!!
