Travel Theme: FESTIVE: The Spirit of Christmas

christams tree fest

What an apt theme for this week’s photo challenge put on by the worldly Ailsa of “Where’s My Backpack”.   I must admit that when I was younger, I was a wee bit jaded by Christmas.  I was put off by the obvious commercialism and rampant consumerism. I thought at the time, this was typical of the season.

Watching the holidays through the eyes of my children changed that for me. My beautiful children are now beautiful teenagers and the festive spirit of Christmas grows and grows in me with every passing year.

I have found this season to be a time of love, togetherness and yes, miracles….and although the Christmas holiday is not universal, I believe these ideas can be. This very sentiment resonates like a shining beacon that can light the way for us all.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone!
