There is so much to do getting ready for any holiday but the list of chores on our “To Do” list prior to Christmas is especially long. As such, I typically forego the usual Checklist of gardening tasks. Other than grooming house plants, buying a few more poinsettias and holiday plants for decoration or for gifts, and stacking the seed catalogs that arrive daily in the mail, most of us are focused on other details of our holiday preparations.
Yet, we shouldn’t let these tasks become deterrents from enjoying the spirit of Christmas. Take time to sing a few carols, sip from the Wassail Bowl, dance to the Nutcracker, visit friends and relatives and do some charitable deeds.
I wish you a very merry Christmas and happy holiday season. May all your days be filled with peace and joy.
