Love is in the air – at least for a week or so. 😉
Daddy was only saying a couple of days ago that he remembers having seen some of that Christmas cake and Christmas biscuit stuff in the shops as early as September. Now I don´t know what “September” is but it seems to be quite a long time ago. If Christmas goodies get sold so early it´s no wonder people aren´t “up to it” when the time is ripe.
Daddy was also saying that many of the people he spoke with said that they were not buying any pressies this year. People wanted to give those flimsy piece of paper things with numbers printed on them as presents.
That´s not really very nice is it. I mean, humans love their paper with numbers on them but it´s not exactly “Christmassy” is it.
I don´t think the idea is to receive large presents or wads of paper stuff but they could still show appreciation for one another buy giving a small gift as a token of their love for one another. That way, it could help some Christmas magic to come back into their lives again. Still, as you´ve already said, if it makes them all happy.
I believe most “modern” humans live their lives spoilt for choice and because of all of their possibilities, the magic of life seems to get left behind and disappears out of their lives.
I found it nice the last time we had Christmas because daddy picked me up and allowed me to plonk that angel figure thingy on top of the shiny, bright spikey thing. The combination of his warm hands supporting my body and the joy of me placing that “thing” on the top spike gave me a warm glow inside.
By the way, the spikey thing is called a Christmas tree Mr. Midnight. It looks the same as those growing outside in our kingdom, but it doesn´t smell quite the same.
I think he believes in preserving the planet as best he can. He finds it a shame when two weeks later, all the “rubbish” (Christmas trees) have to be collected from the local refuse company. He finds it all a waste I think.
So we´ll just have to make do with our English artificial tree. I suppose the main thing is that “love is in the air” in our house. That “fusty smell” from the tree will dissipate with our strong love for one another. 🙂
