Holiday Inspirations

I call December the month of preparations. Between the shopping for gifts, sending Christmas greeting cards, decorating the Christmas tree and home, attending parties… it can really feel like a marathon. Still, the best part of the season is the sweet and warm feeling you get when people come together for celebrations, not forgetting the importance of charity.

Perhaps best of all is seeing the joy of the season in the twinkling eyes of the children while they are untying ribbons and unwrapping gifts with smiles on their faces. Come to think of it-I think we all have this feeling; we’re all kids on Christmas morning!

Here are some inspirational images of the season. Enjoy!
