To people who say I 'overdo' Christmas
To people who say I 'overdo' Christmas by feeling it and looking forward to it all year, I say,
"I sometimes think we expect too much of Christmas Day. We try to crowd into it the long arrears of kindliness and humanity of the whole year. As for me, I like to take my Christmas a little at a time, all through the year. And thus I drift along into the holidays--let them overtake me unexpectedly--waking up some fine morning and suddenly saying to myself, 'Why, this is Christmas Day!'"
This quote is from David Grayson, but it sums up perfectly how I feel about Christmas: I do feel it all year, the spirit, the humanity, the kindness and love. The excitement... I drift welcoming into the holidays and though I look to it all year I turn around one day and say, "Why, it's here!". Just as I am tonight :smitten:
