Merry Christmas Eve

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Christmas Eve, a time of excitement and anticipation. Things happen during Christmas, good things, and bad things. Just because it’s Christmas doesn’t mean all life’s problems magically fix themselves. Christmas isn’t about what advertising companies make it, it’s not about the gift-giving and the decorations, and it’s not about pretending life’s problems aren’t there. It’s about taking time to reflect on the important things in life.

The lights and decorations remind us that this is a season of hope, love, and the promise of a new year. The gifts remind us that we are special and the people around us are special. The holidays are just an excuse to take a couple weeks, put your feet up, and have a bit of me-time.

I love the Christmas season. Nothing beats waking up on Christmas morning to open stockings, having brunch with your family and go on to have a wonderful day. Our plans as a family change every year and with the moving out of my brother, this Christmas is sure to be a strange one. But Christmas has a certain magic to it, and it’s something that always makes me sad when it’s over.

If nothing else, Christmas is a time to be around good people, good food, and good vibes. …and the fairy lights, don’t forget the fairy lights.

  1. Thanks for this wonderful Christmas Eve blog and the good wishes Abby! We reciprocate thinking of you and your family. Matthew has prepared packets with votive candles on sand bases and distributed them to the whole neighbourhood to set up on their driveways. Santa will be able to follow the lighted course to Primrose Ave! Hope he finds his way to ‘toti. The magic of Christmas and all it means never escapes us, no matter how young or old we are.. Love Granny.

  2. Hello, Abby!
    I agree: Christmas is one of the brightest holidays of the year. Your post is very nice! Viewing it is a real pleasure.
    I would like to share my ideas concerning creating your slideshow for Christmas and other holidays. I think, it can be a good help. So… You can create slideshow online. There are many sites offering to choose a design and upload your photos, then your order is processed either by designers or by a software algorithm. Another option is to download a program and deal with on your own (spending time on setup, training and montage).
    Here is an article from Wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slide_show
    You can also watch a little video with overview of online services of slideshow creators: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fiMlbiVYFB0&t=1s
    From online services I like https://slideshow.photos/ (I am really excited: it is simple and practical in use. The result is perfect! Enjoy!)
    If you want to download a program http://www.apimac.com/mac/slideshow/
    Have a nice day!
