Ahhh, so one of my favorite things right now is Christmas lights. And when my awesome grandparents visited for Thanksgiving I recruited their help to install some in my bedroom. It's soo easy, but so beautiful. All you need is a string(20+ ft. is preferable) of lights and some small Command hooks.
I decided to share the pictures here because it seemed like the sort of thing I should post about.
So, what are you looking forward to most about Christmas? The break from school? The music? The food? The presents? The movies?
|I share the closet with three sisters, so all the dresses aren't mine. However, most of the books are. :)|
My Christmas break plans consist of reading lotttsss of books, re-watching Downton Abbey Season 2(*sigh*), and practicing violin till my finger pads wear off. Oh, and spending time with family of course.

Does anyone else struggle with keeping the Christmas season focused on Christ? It's difficult with commercialism and stress and my distracting lights, but it's what's most important, right?
One thing about harnessing my thoughts towards Christ is realizing I can savor the joy of Christmas all year. There's always that let-down in January after you've opened all your presents and finished all the cookies, but realizing that the amazing gift of salvation is something I can be grateful for all year helps.
Are you one of those people who starts celebrating really early or do you wait till after Thanksgiving?
Do you love or hate Christmas shopping?

Do you have any plans for Christmas break?

Well that was a different sort of post. :) Usually I would ask questions, but I've given so many already that you can just answer those. :) Unless you have any questions for me? *raises eyebrows expectantly*
