Although we all "can't believe Christmas is here..." IT IS! Whether your shopping is done or you forgot that one person while you were shopping for yourself (I have never done that...!), there is no denying the fact that it's Christmas-time again! Thankfully, we got our bonus checks at work the week before Christmas which significantly helped me out this year. I'm not one for the holiday mall chaos considering I worked at Express for four years and had to fight the "slow-walkers" and "panik-y last-minute" shoppers just to get to work on time. I made my way to Ross, Sports Authority and Books-a-Million to finish my shopping and took my time in doing so...nowhere to be...no one rushing me. I finished all of my shopping in one day! Altough you may be proud of that...or even jealous...it's not because I wanted to stop shopping! You can only shop for so long when you don't have any money in the bank! ouch...harsh reality! Anyways, I wrapped everything and carefully placed each gift under the tree to make it appear as if I had won the lottery! Big bows, tissue paper, and overflowing gift baskets are wonderful illusions to the human eye!! Hopefully, the day when I'm rich..the gifts I give (...and receive) won't fit under a tree!
Although Christmas is obviously about the birth of Christ and is the "reason for the season," traditions cannot be overlooked when you begin hearing Christmas music everywhere you go. A Christmas Story, It's a Wonderful Life, and Miracle on 34th Street are all classic Christmas movies that everyone should see atleast once! Well, I wanted to add a couple things to your viewing Christmas pleasure that you can remember year-after-year! Now...keep in mind these videos are completely different from eachother as one is a SNL skit and the other is a church skit.
This link will take you to a skit from Discovery Church in 2006. Don't underestimate the seriousness of this skit because of the humor. It is great!
Now...this link will take you to a hilarious SNL skit with Justin Timberlake as the 'Cup o' Soup.' I laugh every time I watch it! You will never look at the Salvation Army bellmen at the Wal-Mart entrances the same again! Enjoy!
Have a Merry Christmas!
