#ChronicChristmas Day 25: Enjoy

It’s here. By the time you read this, you’ve probably done the big rip (especially if you have kids) (or you still retain the childlike wonder about pressies).

I’m all about the latter. Maybe even the childlike wonder about the magic of this particular holiday. It’s what gets you through a busy, emotional day. Connecting to the feeling you had as a child, seeing the excitement in the faces of the children that are part of your day, or just enjoying that warmth in your heart.

No doubt you’re exhausted. Even if you followed every single tip in the #ChronicChristmas Advent calendar, you have likely burned through every bit of energy you have. Take some painkillers and slap the fun filter on it for the rest of the day so you can enjoy the festivities. You can crash tonight. 

And when you do, know that you’re not alone. I’m crashing right along with you, and so is everyone else.

Thank you for following along with for the last 25 days. Creating this Advent calendar for you has made my life much more fun and helped me get into the Christmas spirit. A.k.a. Julehygge.

Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas. May it give you peace and love.
