Christmas morning, in my opinion, has gotten lost in the modern society. I see today's version as a commercial, money grabbing, bling infested holiday.
The first day of fall has barely made the calendar and signs of Christmas are showing up in stores and advertising. Let the shopping frenzy begin! I need, I want, I gotta get that, is on the lips of old and young alike.
I may be old fashioned, but I like the part about Christmas that brings family and friends together. Baking special treats. Making gifts. Visits with friends and neighbours. Playing cards and board games. Taking time to watch each other open gifts. Men folk sound asleep in the easy chair. Kids outside playing (in the snow), and saying Merry Christmas.
