Christmas in July...The Conclusion


I just wanted to thank everyone who visited during Christmas in July.  I hope you enjoyed everything I shared with you this month.  I wish it could have been more, but this year turned out to be more busy than previous years.

I hope you will join me in late November for the Sharing the Joy event and the Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge.  It's always fun every year! And, of course, stop by for Rudolph Day every month on the 25th.

I leave you with this wonderful poem by Norman Wesley Brooks that exactly sums up my feelings about Christmas....

Let Every Day Be Christmas

Christmas is forever, not for just one day,
for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away
like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf.
The good you do for others is good you do yourself.

Peace on Earth, good will to men,
kind thoughts and words of cheer,
are things we should use often
and not just once a year.

Remember too the Christ-child, grew up to be a man;
to hide him in a cradle, is not our dear Lord's plan.
So keep the Christmas spirit, share it with others far and near,
from week to week and month to month, throughout the entire year!

--Norman Wesley Brooks, 1923-2002

Always in spirit....

  2. Thanks so much for participating in the Celebration of Christmas in July over at A Debbie-Dabble Christmas!
    It was such fun, wasn't it?
    I will be leaving the links on my Side Bar until October.
    Hopefully, next year I will be organized enough to do a Christmas in July Linky Party!
    Thanks again!

    Hugs,
    Debbie
