Every year the stores start putting out costumes for Halloween. This always signals me to start thinking about the holidays. I can't wait for Halloween to pass so I can start planning Thanksgiving dinner, Black Friday shopping, trimming the tree, decorating the yard, and planning my gift giving shopping list. I start thinking about the true meaning of Christmas and I'm so thankful that God gave his son to us. I start thinking about how important it is to make certain my children enjoy the holidays without losing sight of how blessed we are. I also start thinking about how I can give back or help others. Christmas is my absolute favorite time of the year because I truly believe most of the country if not the world is a little happier and a little more optimistic.
This week's question is what makes you feel like the holidays or the Christmas season has arrived? Post a comment by noon CST Friday, November 30th, to be eligible to win this weeks giveaway.
