Christmas is one of my favorite holidays, there is nothing about it that I don’t like. I love holiday baking, the decorations, the lights, the drinks, the festive cheer…I can go on and on but the one thing that stands out for me is the joy and happiness that surrounds this festive holiday season. Every year I look forward to the month of December where I get to catch up with friends and of course my FAMILY.
The people who do know me best, know exactly what I mean when I say “I love Christmas”. They know how much I love spending the holidays with my family. They know how much I speak highly of my family shenanigans throughout the week of Christmas. My family is really awesome. Yep, I am biased…I know lol! Every Christmas I can promise myself that I will experience the following:
- fun times
- inappropriate jokes/ laughing so hard till you cry
- great food/continuous food
- endless drinks
- so much love….cheesey I know!
Usually the Holiday season is reminder that I am alone and that I am single but to be honest after the few moments of thinking about being single, my mind resorts back to how lucky I am to be filled with the best companions of all….MY FAMILY. They are the best people to have around the holiday season, with them there is no judgement, no wondering what the other person is thinking and no self-doubt in the wonderment if I will see them in the next three or six months …lol!
With my FAMILY, I can truly just be myself and enjoy every moment being with them. I enjoy their company every day but its difficult to combine 17 people under one roof all the time so therefore having one special day where we can come together really makes it special for all of us. As lives change and additions to the family keep adding on, it’s truly amazing that we love seeing each other still.
To all the attached people out there, if you were happy with the company you had over the holiday season then you conquered the greatest thing of all. It doesn’t matter if you shared love with just one, small few or the largest group…if you felt that you spent your Christmas with the most important people in your life then you should be happy. To all the single people out there, you’re never alone. The feeling of happiness comes from you and your understanding and appreciation of all the great people around you. That feeling that you get with the relationships you have in your life, should be enough.
Now don’t get me wrong, having a special someone is still on my mind but I honestly believe that if you by-pass the most important relationship you were given in your life..ie the relationship with your parents, brothers, cousins, nieces and nephews then how can you make a relationship with a stranger work out?
Love yourself, Love the people around you then the one relationship you’re searching for will magically appear 😉
Have a wonderful holiday season and take advantage of the last few days in 2017!
Love, Laugh, Date!
