Well, somehow my blog stats have been screaming ahead. My site has never been so popular.
Unfortunately, its not for the reason I put this blog together, and only really because I have an old Christmas article with a Christmas photo up.
But it does prove people are definitely thinking about Christmas already. Tonight I was around at my friends house. He is literally the Spirit of Christmas! For the last 2 months he has been working on his fruit mince, and I must say, his fruit mince pies are the best I have tasted! He has already ordered his Christmas Tree, is looking at lights and decorations, and been planning Christmas dinners and recipes.
All this makes me think, how am I going to prepare myself for Christmas this year?
Most years it manages to whizz by without me having put any real soul into it.
This year I want to have a Christmas resolution: to make sure I contribute something positive during this season. I would like to connect more on a spiritual level with season.
It’s sad that is such a busy, commercial event. We have forgotten what it really is all about.
At the same time, I continue to struggle with my life, trying to find some meaning in it.
Maybe there is some connection.
At least Christmas isn’t necessarily a misery as my ex felt it was. That should have been warning enough for me to have avoided going down that path. Hindsight is 20/20. If only….
Below some stats graphs to illustrate what I mean about the sudden spikes:
