Let the Celebration Begin

The lights are in place outside, the house is decorated inside, the shopping is done, and last night the final gifts were wrapped. We're ready for Christmas. Let the celebrations begin. Friday night is our Bible Study group's party. Tuesday night is my wife's office (Church staff) Christmas party. Wednesday night is the church choir (my bride is in the choir) party. Party, party, party! I must admit, it is easier to enjoy the celebrations when the chores are done. I can actually read the ads in the paper and look for bargins for myself or my wife.
This season we are truly blessed. In a down economy, the company I work for is actually very busy. In fact we're hiring some additional staff. Thank you Lord! I have worked in firms that had to "restructure" or "downsize" from time to time. I hated it!!! I was the victim a few times...I really hated that. I had to do the down siziing once...I really hated that too. May your Christmas be blessed and filled with the joy of family and friends. Next week I will get the Christmas ornament photos posted, I promise.
And now, for a little music and light display.

Finally a Christmas song. This is quite possibly the best version of O Holy Night that I have ever heard. Enjoy.

O Holy Night - David Phelps

Loved the videos. We too are done with all the Christmas shopping and gift wrapping. I will admit we don't have all the parties to go to though.

I'm glad your company is busy. There are many that aren't. We are both retired and we have a county supervisor that's bent on messing with our medical benefit. I'm sure we will lose it, and it's quite a hunk of change. We shall see.

Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)

I am still rehanging lights and need to finish shopping...

I have been down-sized and that was bad...but honestly...having to downsize others bothered me even more.

Grand weekend Sir.

That light show is fascinating. And it's set to one of my favorite holiday songs.

Let's hear it for great minds! You and I are clearly on the same wave length because I shared the first holiday video (and 3 others) on my blogs yesterday. I confess I'd not heard this version of O Holy Night and think you're right ... in that this one is AMAZING. Thanks for sharing.
Hugs and blessings,

That last video was absolutely amazing!
