So This is Christmas
The holiday spirit is everywhere and, as in years past, this is not lost on LP and AK.
What is different is that this year we are all more involved in the Jewish community - thanks to AK attending the Jewish Community Center for day care and LP going to Sunday school. I am a bit surprised at how much of an impact this has on their holiday season experience.
AK says stuff like, "Mommy why are they already decorated for Christmas? It isn't Christmas yet!"
And LP chimes in, "Mom, Christmas is only get one day, right? We get eight!"
LP has started eating latkes and both girls request our CD of Chanukah pop songs. And sing along.
They both keep tally of which of their friends are "Christmas people" and "Chanukah people" and the "really lucky friends that celebrate both!"
They couldn't wait to decorate our home for Chanukah and have a party, In fact, I think LP has been making place-settings for a not-planned Chanukah party for several weeks now.
So, dear readers - Merry Christmas! Feliz Navidad! Happy Chanukah! Blessed Kwanzaa! Happy Holidays!
