I Choose Joy

I Choose Joy.

Some people find the Christmas season irritating.

The lights, the crowds, the commercialism.

I am not one of those people.

I Choose Joy.

I love the lights, the family gatherings, the smells of pine and sugar.

I love the songs especially the Bing Crosby tunes from my childhood.

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas
Santa Claus Is Comin’ To Town
And Silver Bells.
Love Silver Bells.

Funniest song ever?

There’s Something Stuck Up In the Chimney.

To paraphrase a famous quote about choosing to be happy, I choose to love Christmas, the season of Joy.


Merry Christmas to All

  3. Merry Christmas. No family gatherings for us and it's hard for me to be joyful with so many gone from this world that I'd like to spend it with but I'm trying to enjoy it for my son. Your holiday spirit is nice. Let's hope it's also contagious. :)

  5. I don't like the greed but I love the tree and the pretty lights and spending extra time with the people I care most about. The food helps, too :)
