Black and White
Here we are, a week before Christmas, and it was almost 70 degrees. Please explain to me how you are supposed to be in a hot kitchen baking sugar cookies with a day like that right out your door.
So out we went. Now, this may seem a tad irresponsible since the boys had runny noses and coughs, but who doesn't this time of year. And really, I was only looking out for their well being since they would get plenty of Vitamin D.
Let me tell you, growing up in a region where Christmastime is cold, this weather definitely messed with the senses. Seeing garland and tinsel while wiping sweat from your brow was feeling contradictory.
While personally I would not mind at all to spend Christmas laid out on a beach soaking up the sun, there is also just something about being wrapped in sweaters, sipping hot chocolate, and seeing lights against frosted window panes.
I LOVE this weather, too. But I agree it makes it a little harder to get in the Christmas spirit. We went to Hawaii over Christmas break once when I was in college (with my parents) and it was definitely odd to see Christmas trees and wreathes hanging up while you walked to the beach. :) But it was a good kind of odd. ;)ReplyDelete
