What is Decembering you ask? That's easy. It's all things we like to do in December. Each of us of course is different in the many ways we go about Decembering, but we all end up at the same place... celebrating all the things we love about December. From St Nicholas Day to the Winter Solstice, to Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, New Years eve... and then it's over. Just as quickly as it began. All the celebrating and crafting, and parties and pageants, tree lightings and Christmas walks, trees and whole neighborhoods decorated inside and out, caroling with friends and neighbors, delicious cookie decorating and exchanges, wreath making, Christmas movie watching and so much more.
I am filled with joy and anticipation for the month ahead. I don't want to get discouraged with all the things I "should be doing." This is a month to savor. And I'm going to. I am going to enjoy each and every moment with friends and family because January will be here before we know it with her diet plans, organization methods, and fresh calendars. But, December is here now, with her arms open to family time, savory treats, twinkling lights and celebrating the birth of the Prince of Peace. Welcome, beautiful December. Welcome!
