You can definitely tell that it is the Christmas season. As I was out walking tonight I could see that many houses are now lit up or have decorations in their yards.
This reminds me of Classic Christmas Cards that my Grandma saved in her scrapbooks.
It is also a time to look forward to reading A Christmas Carol. I will often read this classic by Dickens in December. Perhaps you will watch one of the many renditions on TV instead 🙂
I also think of my Grandpa during this time of the year. Partly because his birthday was in December, but also because he was the town Santa Claus in Hamburg, Iowa for many years.
For the other side of my family I can think about two Christmases. Did you know that some of the Amish celebrate two Christmases? See my post Amish Christmases.
