Hazy Shade of Winter...
Over on Facebook I've been doing a 12 Days of Christmas Countdown, ending with today's post. Here's a recap in case you haven't been able to get over there:
Day 1: Start a tradition (like going out for Chinese food on Christmas Eve)
Day 2: Make a musical mix (holiday/seasonal or otherwise)
Day 3: Make some treats to share (and no, they don't have to be made from scratch!)
Day 4: Wrap it up by reusing interesting papers (magazine photos, wrappers, tissue paper, etc.)
Day 5: Give back (by donating food, money, clothes, or even volunteering your time)
Day 6: Give it away (clear out clutter in your home while donating to charities)
Day 7: Stay in shape (turn walks or runs into time with your friends and loved ones)
Day 8: Let it go (accept that nothing has to be perfect--it's the thought that counts)
Day 9: Savor the season (indulge in seasonal treats--as long as you also stay physical!)
Day 10: Trade it (have parties themed around book or other exchanges--a great way to share what you love)
Day 11: Just do it (family visits can be a good thing, despite all the stress)
Day 12: Relax (take a moment to reflect, or do something for yourself)
As I said in my Day 12 post on Facebook, you are surrounded by love at this time of the year, whether you know it or not. Tap into that good feeling and have a great holiday!
