December 1, 2009

It is hard for me to believe that another year has passed and that holiday season is now in full swing. Thanksgiving is a big one for my family and me. It is the one time a year we all get together. I like Thanksgiving because it is a holiday that is all about celebrating who and what you are thankful for and it all revolves around my favorite activity, eating! I am very thankful for my family, my friends, for the wonderful city that I live in, and for my health. Oh, I better knock on wood for that last one!

Now no matter what holiday you might celebrate in December, and there are a few of them, December is always intense. I celebrate Christmas. I am not someone who thinks ahead and so I am always scrambling at the last minute to buy gifts and food and to whip my house into shape for anyone who may come to visit.  Every year I tell myself that next year I am going to be on top of things, but alas, it never happens. I have resigned myself to the fact that I am a last minute person and that is just the way it is. It doesn't help that I always work extra jobs in December in order to make more money. This, in conjunction with holiday parties, makes it a really busy month. No matter how much I am in denial about it, December is here. Once again I have to hurry, hurry, hurry! Oh well, maybe all of the rushing around will help me burn off those extra pounds I packed on during Thanksgiving. Gobble, gobble!

Happy Holidays English, baby Members! See you in 2010.

I love Christmas becuase it is a big season for living with my family and enjoying with them. Fuerthermore, not only the gifsts are important for this holiday becuase each one shares his o her time with the ohters, it is the most imporatnt of Christmas, the oportunity of sharing something for a special person(grandma, grandpa, and so on).

I agree . I´m really hurry every year too . I´m from Slovakia and there is similar situation than in Brazil and in the other states ...I think everybody is hurry.. but I think that everybody forget about basic idea of christmas, why many people celebrate christmas when not believe in God ?

Well, I agree December is the time of a hurry, We are happy because it is time to give and get some gifts, it´s also time to be in family, thanks God. but sometimes we are in such a hurry, that we don´t have enough time to do all the things we plan.  Here in Brazil, December is tthe beginning of the most beautiful season... Summer ... and it means sunny days and unexpected rains, but it is wonderful.
