AND SO THE SEASON COMES TO AN END...


Yesterday was Twelfth Night/Epiphany and so officially ended the Christmas season.  The Sharing the Joy event was a great success with all the generous people who helped to contribute guest posts for me this year.  I appreciated it so much and I hope you all enjoyed it.  Sharing the Joy will now be a yearly event and I hope to have even more guests next year.  Also, The Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge ended yesterday.  How did you do?  I only managed to read two books...was far too busy with my move to get much reading done.  I will be posting my wrap-up in a couple of days.  If you have a wrap-up, feel free to leave it here in the comments or over at the review linky...just be sure to include wrap-up when you post your link.  I'm still going to try to get by and read some of your reviews and I will check out your wrap-ups.  Just bear with me! Finally, the Sharing the Joy Christmas Book Extravaganza giveaway ended last night at 11:59 pm CT.  I will be drawing the winners in the next couple of days and will post the winners here and notify them by email. 

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and I wish you much love and prosperity in this shiny new year.  Something I try to do all year long is to keep the Christmas spirit, not only by celebrating Rudolph Day every 25th of the month (come by every month for some Christmas cheer) and throughout the month for Christmas in July, but also in my attitudes and actions towards others.  So I leave you with this song, which I feel sums up the heart of Christmas perfectly....

Don't Save it all for Christmas Day

Don't get so busy that you miss
Giving just a little kiss
To the ones you love
And don't even wait a little while
To give them a little smile
A little is enough

How many people are crying
Some people are dying...
How many people are askin’ for love

Don't save it all for Christmas Day
Find a way
To give a little love everyday

Don't save it all for Christmas Day
Find a way
Cause holidays have come and gone
But love lives on
If you give on
Love...

How could you wait another minute
A hug is warmer when you're in it
Oh Baby that's a fact
And saying "I love you's" always better
Seasons, reasons, they don't matter
So don't hold back
How many people in this world
So needful in this world
How many people are praying for love

Don't save it all for Christmas Day
Find a way
To give a little love everyday
Don't save it all for Christmas Day
Find a way
Cause holidays have come and gone
But love lives on
If you give on
Give love…..

Let all the children know
Everywhere that they go
Their whole life long
Let them know love

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
(Don't save it all for Christmas Day)
Yeah, and give a little love everyday

Don't save it all for Christmas Day
Find a way
Cause holidays have come and gone

(fading)
Don't save it all for Christmas Day
Find a way
To give a little love everyday

Don't save it all for Christmas Day
Find a way
Cause holidays have come and gone


Always in spirit...

  1. Love the song, but not by Clay Aiken. I did post a short wrap-up today, but no reviews.

  2. That song is perfect. I don't know if you heard about the school shooting here this week, but there has been a lot of talk around about treating people better.
