‘Tis the season to be jolly….Really? In October? I was shopping this past weekend for something to wear for a segment on a local news channel when I actually heard a Christmas song at the department store. I love the holidays and everything that comes along with them but it did seem a little early, even for me. Still, I found myself singing along as my thoughts drifted to Christmas shopping, parties, decorating, and–oh my gosh I have to do a Christmas card!–when suddenly choirs of angels started singing (literally) and I had my big ah-ha moment. Christmas songs. That’s the answer!
Every year I struggle over Christmas card wording ideas to put on my holiday cards. Many of them just don’t seem personal enough. But this year I’m going to take the words from a Christmas song and make them my own. When I picture Joy to the World next to a photo of my kids with bright happy smiles on their faces, it takes on a whole new meaning. Silent night with a photo of my sleeping baby. Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!–and a photo of my kids making a snowman. Give it a try. I’ll bet you can come up with plenty of others to fit your family.
