The Christmas Spirit

Wouldn't it be wonderful if the Christmas Spirit lived on 24/7, 365 days a year? Think about do you feel during the Christmas season? Most people, I believe, are extremely happy and have an extra little kick in their step. They treat people nicer and smile a whole lot more. Wouldn't it be wonderful if everyone could feel and act that way year round? Last night my husband and I were doing our weekly shopping in our local Wal-Mart and as we were walking past the check out aisles I saw a middle aged woman checking out and she was wearing a Santa Claus hat. A Santa Claus hat on January 22th! Kudos to her! I imagine she was probably wearing it because she was cold and had no other hat but who knows...maybe she was just trying to bring a smile to someones day.

Do you ever do something totally out of the normal to draw attention to yourself or try to make someone smile? I usually try not to draw attention to myself but I'm not always successful.

I am going to go on a hunt for the Christmas Spirit. If you are reading this blog, please leave a post letting me know what your definition of the Christmas Spirit is.

Have a blessed day!


  1. I think being nice, the best that we can be, all year round would be the ultimate Christmas spirit! I doubt that'll happen, though! Ever notice how people are willing to give more money and other types of donations during the holidays? The Salavation Army is out, ringing a bell, the church I attend does Christmas For An Orphan (you box up a bunch of items for an international orphan), I get stuff in the mail, soliciting for donations since it's Christmas. People also spend more money on others buying gifts! We should always be so generous, but, if we were, I'm sure the whole nation would be broke! LOL!

  2. Giving. I love the spirit of giving. I try to hold on to it all year.
