Twas the Night Before Christmas

How do you prepare for Christmas?  I’ve spent a few days in eager anticipation of this mystical holiday.  I love Christmas. It’s a wonderful holiday thought it has little biblical foundation for the season.  I love preparing, putting thought into gifts for others, and gathering with friends and family.  The days between Christmas and New Year’s are time for thoughtful reflection, planning for the year ahead, and catching up on sleep while the world is on hold.

Here’s a few of my favorite Christmas treats:
