I miss Christmas...

I know I've been away for a while. I don't have a very exciting reason unfortunately; I didn't get married. I didn't go travelling around the world. I didn't go on a sabbatical. I wasn't depressed. I didn't die and go to Heaven. Truth is I didn't have anything to write. OK, I'll rephrase that. I didn't have anything I felt was worth writing about, and I didn't want to blab. I feel like if someone has taken the time to visit my blog, I want to give them something worth reading. So, I disappeared for a little while, hoping it wouldn't be forever. I have missed my blog though, and I've missed my readers and their blogs too. So, I'm back. I can't promise that I'll write everyday or every week, but I'll try and keep this thing going. 

So this morning I woke up and the first song that came to mind was that Christmas song 'O Holy night'. I suddenly had that nostalgic feeling and I was like 'I miss Christmas man!' I had a lovely Christmas celebration by the way, spent it with a sister and a friend that loves to cook (that's why she's my best friend!) All I did was sleep, eat, chill, eat again. It was awesome. Anyway, like I was saying, the thoughts that were in my head this morning were 'I miss Christmas, I wish it was Christmas again' Not because of the food, but because, as we all know, there's just something about the Christmas season. But just as I was thinking this, I realised that I'd got it all wrong! Christmas is not something that happens every year around December. Christmas is a celebration of something that happened over two thousand years ago. It is a celebration of the Son of God becoming the Son of man so that the sons of men could become sons of God. It's something that if I really believe, I should be celebrating everyday! 

So, I don't need to wait another ten months to get excited about the birth of Christ. I can get excited now. I can get excited whenever. I can listen to my Christmas carols in the middle of summer if I want to. Yes, I might get a few weird and wonderful looks but who cares? They don't get it. So, right now I'm listening to my favourite Christmas carol and after that I might stick my Boney M cd in as well (nothing reminds me of Christmas like Boney M!) 

Here's 'O Holy night' by Mariah Carey. Enjoy!
