Chanukkah and Christmas together! 2016:)


Holiday Time.

Some free advice.
Don’t let stress ruin your holidays my friends.

Don’t get thrown if misunderstandings between family members increase.
If they really get to ya, sneak away.

Spend some time alone if you like.
There’s nothing like a few minutes of solitude.
Take a walk at night and gaze at the the moon and stunning stars.
Listen to your favorite music.

Have a cookie.
In fact, have two.

You may be sad or lonely if you find yourself without a loved one.

It’s all okay.
It’s all normal.

Just feel the feelings.
No need to manufacture feelings you may not have “just because “tis the season to be jolly.”
Then again, reaching out and helping others is a sure fire way to lift your spirits.

If your’e in a bit of financial bind, don’t fret that “everyone on your gift list be happy” by overspending and feeling anxious afterward.

It’s not only about opening presents, but opening your hearts.

He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree.
Roy L. Smith

Indulge. C’mon.
Vegetables are a must on a diet. I suggest carrot cake, zucchini bread, and pumpkin pie.
Jim Davis

Worries go down better with soup.
Jewish Proverb


Most of all…the biggest challenge of the Season:
Practice forgiveness.

Some of us, especially activitsts and bloggers, try desperately to help light the world. Perhaps, at this time……… we just need to learn how to light up our own lives.

May the lights of Chanukah and Christmas usher in a better world for all humankind.
And may love and light fill your homes and hearts this holiday season my sweet friends.

    I promise there will be no stress here. We eliminated that years ago. All the angry family members were ask not to come back. They thought it was okay to argue all day while hubby and I did all the cooking, serving and cleaning up. Now it’s just hubby and I and we are totally happy with that.

    I love coming here for all the food. No place in blog land is the food more appetizing. No place. I think I gained 2 pounds just coming here.

    Have a fabulous day and a very happy Hanukkah. Love you Angel. ♥♥♥

    Let’s hope this works, ANgel!
    OBVIOUSLY, I LOVE your post…FOOD FOOD FOOD! Hurrah!
    What’s neat is that I’d written pretty much the same message on my SUnday Faith Blog…”don’t get the Christmas blues….and here’s how to avoid them…”

    I hope you’re doing great and I hope this comment works! Sorry I can’t comment here, it doesn’t happen anywhere else! :-( Big hugs, Z

    Yes, yes, yes!

    I know that I’ve gotten into the bad habit of complaining too much about politics.

    Good advice. I’m all for simplifying the lead up to Christmas. Less is more except when it comes to the food. You always have the best goodies. I need to take a walk now to work off the virtual calories ;)

    Happy Hanukkah to you and yours.
