Christmas Rush

Are you rushing about trying to desperately get ready for Christmas? If so, then you are not alone! Millions of Americans are try to find time to buy that special gift for family and friends. Where to go? Where to go? First off, you can drive to the stores just down the street or in the nearest city. And if that doesn’t work, then you can turn on the computer and go on Amazon or other favorite online stores.

Then once you have finally bought that last gift, you can finally yell, Yay, I did it! Wait, not so fast. There are Christmas cards your friends and family are looking for in their mailboxes. That special traditional holiday food is calling for you to buy it, cook it and set it out for others to eat. Boy, there sure is a lot to Christmas. And then there is more. There is that special Christmas program at church you want to participate in or at least don’t want to miss. Did I forget to say there is the tree decorating, as well as, the house decorating? Whew! No wonder we all need to take a minute or two to rest!

If you want to do something different this year, go for it! Do not be afraid to break the mold. Old is good, but new can be better! Might I suggest Learning to Read:New Testament Stories and Learning to Read: Favorite Fairy Tales? Both are good readers during the Christmas season! I know your children or grandchildren will want to read the books. Ask them. And don’t forget Santa’s cookies and milk! Ho! Ho! Ho!
