Christmas 2

Marta said we haven’t posted in a while here.  I reminded her that this is her blog about B.  I was only a guest or featured writer.  But it has been a month since anyone wrote anything.  We should remedy that. 

It’s the Holidays, the Pagan underpinnings with the other religions of the world frosting over it.  I like this time of year.  It goes too fast, when it’s over you want it back, and you don’t want to take down eveything you just put up a month ago.

This is really the first year B will probably really like getting up and seeing what Santa dropped off. That we’ll instill some traditions as a family. Marta and I were talking about this the other day too.  We don’t want to neglect the parts of the holiday that make one reflect on how blessed we are, how grateful we should be, how special it is to be with one another. All this when many can’t say that.  So we’re beginning to not focus on the ‘getting of stuff’ for Christmas, to appreciate what we have, and to give to those who aren’t as fortunate.  It’ll be a start.  Everyone knows a 1 year old 1) does not like to share 2) will throw a tantrum 3) can be as stubborn as a mule.  Couple in our personalities into a diminutive person and you have a recipe for many teaching moments.  For those characteristics we hope the groundwork holds fast to him and that he anticipates the Holidays for those things, not for the stuff under the tree.
