I love my Mom! She is 74 and still goes all out for Christmas.
On the 25th of each month she reminds me that there are "only ___ months left till Christmas!"
She starts the process of decorating her home immediately after Thanksgiving. With the excitement of a child, she hauls her Christmas loot down a steep flight of stairs and joyfully begins the process of placing each and every treasured object in just the right spot. This usually takes her about 4 straight days...nonstop. When she's done...it's nothing short of spectacular! Christmas has arrived and is displayed in all it's glory and the woman who is my Mom is transformed into the little girl of Christmas past.
Her passion for Christmas and the reason for the season, the birth of Christ, is a joy for all who share in her Christmas magic.
