I miss Christmas...

I know I've been away for a while. I don't have a very exciting reason unfortunately; I didn't get married. I didn't go travelling around the world. I didn't go on a sabbatical. I wasn't depressed. I didn't die and go to Heaven. Truth is I didn't have anything to write. OK, I'll rephrase that. I didn't have anything I felt was worth writing about, and I didn't want to blab. I feel like if someone has taken the time to visit my blog, I want to give them something worth reading. So, I disappeared for a little while, hoping it wouldn't be forever. I have missed my blog though, and I've missed my readers and their blogs too. So, I'm back. I can't promise that I'll write everyday or every week, but I'll try and keep this thing going. 


So this morning I woke up and the first song that came to mind was that Christmas song 'O Holy night'. I suddenly had that nostalgic feeling and I was like 'I miss Christmas man!' I had a lovely Christmas celebration by the way, spent it with a sister and a friend that loves to cook (that's why she's my best friend!) All I did was sleep, eat, chill, eat again. It was awesome. Anyway, like I was saying, the thoughts that were in my head this morning were 'I miss Christmas, I wish it was Christmas again' Not because of the food, but because, as we all know, there's just something about the Christmas season. But just as I was thinking this, I realised that I'd got it all wrong! Christmas is not something that happens every year around December. Christmas is a celebration of something that happened over two thousand years ago. It is a celebration of the Son of God becoming the Son of man so that the sons of men could become sons of God. It's something that if I really believe, I should be celebrating everyday! 


So, I don't need to wait another ten months to get excited about the birth of Christ. I can get excited now. I can get excited whenever. I can listen to my Christmas carols in the middle of summer if I want to. Yes, I might get a few weird and wonderful looks but who cares? They don't get it. So, right now I'm listening to my favourite Christmas carol and after that I might stick my Boney M cd in as well (nothing reminds me of Christmas like Boney M!) 


Here's 'O Holy night' by Mariah Carey. Enjoy!

  1. Renny, welcome back! I missed you! It's nice that you are concerned about the quality of the content of your blog, but please don't disappear like that again :-) P-L-E-A-S-E!

    You're not the only one who listens to Christmas songs on non-Christmas days. I know several people who do, so you're not weird. And yes, we should always be excited about the birth of Jesus. Easter is coming up too. Something else to be excited about :D

    1. Mister Wendal! I've been very well thanks. We used to listen to Boney M every single Christmas as kids, so Christmas for me is never the same without it. Hope all the ladies in your house aren't giving you too much trouble! ;)
