Joy and Connection

I love Christmas time, the pretty lights, the excitement, the mulled wine, the open fires... Did I mention the mulled wine :)

There's something about Christmas that is just so cosy :) and, for me, this feeling is not just relegated to Christmas and Boxing Day, it's the whole season that sparkles for me. What is it about this time of year that makes me so happy? People. People make me happy, when they're happy and excited and kind and together, I love it. There's something about this time of year that makes people happy and grateful for all that is around us. We joke that it's 'just the presents we're excited about' but it's not really is it :) It goes deeper, it's community in a culture where community isn't experienced much, it's about giving in a culture that doesn't have enough time to give, it's about stopping and appreciating all we have and all we are, individually and together. To celebrate and feel joy because life and connection is an amazing thing, and each Christmas we recreate a little piece of this joy, joy in you, and me. And all of us together.

Happy Christmas dudes! I am sending you love and Christmas sparkles, wherever and whoever you are and however you choose celebrate this time of year: you are amazing :)
