Recipe for Christmas Joy

Christmas may be a little bit different this year, but it will definitely come. And perhaps I have been just  a little too materialistic during the past few years and forgetting the true meaning of this wondrous time of the year.  And, as if on cue, the following recipe appeared as I was sorting through some of the many files I have stored on my computer.  Hope you enjoy.

Recipe for Christmas Joy

1/2 cup hugs
4 tsp kisses
4 cups love
1 cup special holiday cheer
1/2 cup "Peace on Earth"
3 tsp Christmas Spirits
2 cups "Goodwill Toward Man"
1 sprig mistletoe
1 medium-size bag of Christmas snowflakes (the regular kind won't do)

Mix hugs, kisses, smiles, and love until consistent.  Blend in holiday cheer, Peace on Earth, Christmas spirits, and Good Will Toward Man.  Use the mixture to fill a large, warm heart where it can be stored for a lifetime.  Serve as desired under mistletoe, sprinkled liberally with special Christmas snowflakes.  It is especially good when accompanied by Christmas Carols and family get-togethers.  Serve to one and all.


  1. You're absolutely right -- Christmas occurs in our hearts. It's available to everyone and is not in the least dependent on material things. And if that's not the message of the first Christmas, what is?

  2. Yes, we all need reminders like this. No matter what the personal circumstances or what the economy or anything. We all need to remember to try to not get caught up in the "Christmas Machine."

    Ever read "Unplug The Christmas Machine" or "Simplify Christmas"? I love those books. :-) Have had them for years. And they were not written in a Recession, as we're in now. So it doesn't have to be "the times"... pushing us to find the core of a Season.

    Ooops, see, you got me on a soap box. lol

  3. Oh and Dear One, you left such a sweet comment on my blog today.

    I'm happy that you're enjoying reading my blog. But don't love it too much. :-) My blog will be built up too far in your mind and for sure, it will begin to fall off its "pedestal." ,-))))))

    Then one day you'll come by and think; "What ever did I find so great about here?!?" :-)
