What I'll Miss (and WON'T Miss) About the Christmas Season

I finished the bodyguard book yesterday!!! Will start revisions once I'm done with these galleys.

Yesterday the dh and I were at the grocery store and I was looking at the amaryllis and thinking I should buy one for Christmas, but...Christmas is Friday! It won't bloom by then.

So I started thinking of all the things I love and will miss when Christmas is over.

1) Decorated stores, especially with pretty displays, like the amaryllis with the rosemary trees.

2) Christmas movies

3) Christmas scents

4) What we call "concoctions"--Sprite with a slice of orange and maraschino cherries

5) My Christmas dishes and glasses

6) good sales

7) Christmas books

8) all the anticipation, my favorite part

What I won't miss:

1) crowds

2) my Christmas decorations. I'm always ready to put them away as soon as Christmas is done. Makes the house roomier

3) Christmas carols. After 3 weeks of listening to them with my class, I'm done.

4) chasing Mama Kitty out from under the tree

What about you? Ready for Christmas to be over, or are you still loving every minute?

Don't forget about the Samhellion contest, where you could win a Kindle 2! And....Nobody Writes It Better is having a holiday giveaway, too!

Congrats on finishing the bodyguard book!

I feel pretty much the same way. I'm fully in the spirit now, and will love everything about Christmas...until Sunday. LOL

Thanks, Natalie! I'm alllllmost ready for it to be over, mostly because my house feels more cluttered, but that could just be because the dh and ds are home ;)

LOL Probably a combination. :)
