It officially feels like the Christmas season has begun. Starting last week, my dad and I put up the outdoor Christmas lights- we have four Christmas balls, three balls, and lights on bushes. It does feel like it is time to officially began to listen to Christmas music. I love a mixture of Christmas songs- not just the fun songs, but hymns as well.
Christmas is my favorite holiday. Just last night, my mom, dad, and I watched “The Man Who Invented Christmas”, which was about how “A Christmas Carol”, was written- A Christmas Carol is my favorite holiday movie and is family tradition to watch. As someone writing a book, it was interesting watching “The Man Who Invented Christmas”- I thought it was the best thing to watch that movie before “A Christmas Carol”. More than anything, the most important movie to watch during the season is “A Christmas Carol”- it means a lot to me
Church Services- I can’t wait for Lessons Carols (which to my surprise, there are actually two of them, not one (one is for Advent and the other is after Christmas) and The Candlelight Christmas Eve Service. The Candlelight Christmas Eve Service may start at 10:45 at night, but is totally worth it: the organ, strings, and the trumpet are part of why along with the moment at “Silent Night” when the lights go out and the candles are lit. Those are my favorite church services during Christmas season.
I can’t wait till there is a Christmas tree. I love decorating it with all the ornaments. I do love wrapping the presents and putting them underneath. At times, I try to guess what I am going to get. I understand the spirit of Christmas. It is one of the best and magical times of the year.
