There’s something about this time of year–the nip in the air, lights everywhere, the imagery of snowflakes gently falling and firelight warming each home–it’s terribly romantic.
Who needs Valentine’s Day when you’ve got Christmas?
Christmas is the most romantic time of year, in my opinion. It’s more romantic, I think, than Valentine’s Day. But I’m no fan of Valentine’s Day anyway (this is a post for another time…).
This is the season for love. For the ultimate love was shown for all humanity when God sent his son to become the Savior of the world.
Something just happens this time of year. It’s a time for excitement. For cheer. For happiness and joy–and no one wants to be alone.
Romanticizing the season is a given. Christmas novels are very popular, especially within the CBA (Christian) market. The idea of finding true love while decorating a Christmas tree…yeah, people eat that up.
I bet several of you have anniversaries in December. It’s a very popular time to get married. (Some claim it’s because the church is already decorated, but I think it’s because it’s romantic…)
What about Christmas songs? How many of them are about love, being separated at the holidays from the one you love, or wishing the one you love joy and cheer? Gazillions of them.
And have you watched the Hallmark Channel lately? I don’t know about you, but I’ve been recording and watching just about every Christmas movie they’ve shown this season. Some are good and some are…not good. But I love them anyway.
It’s the season for snuggling in the cold, mistletoe and buying your true love a gift every day for twelve days. *Side note–I would not enjoy receiving all the different kinds of birds mentioned in that song.*
It’s all about getting into the spirit of Christmas and sharing it with the one you love.
