I mentioned earlier this month, about the concept of a "slow December." In my best efforts, here we are in mid-December (less than a few days away from Christmas!) and I wonder where this time has gone? I don't really know why this has stuck with me this Christmas, but I can't seem to shake it off.
Oh, how I personally miss the mark every year!
So again, (after I just return from a day of full fledged marathon Christmas shopping) I have to ask myself...is it all hustle and bustle? I wonder how I ended up making Christmas out to be so extravagant. I love everything about it, but yet...why do we really celebrate it? Is it really all about the hustle and bustle and gifts? Or the hope, born that day in a stable so many years ago. The gifts, traditions, and decorations are not wrong...but they are symbolic. Let's not forget what they stand for;)
