Just before sunset on the winter solstice, Riley, Kinsley, and went spreading Christmas cheer, caroling and gifting through our neighborhood. The girls would knock on the doors and greet everyone with a big “Merry Christmas!” Kinsley would hand each neighbor a holiday greeting card and then Riley would hand them a small box of treats, most of which we made together here at home.
Finally, we would all sing “Deck The Halls” before the girls were waving and offering another round of hearty wishes of “Merry Christmas!” and “Happy Holidays!” as we moved on to the next home. We saw lots of smiles and happy faces, holiday wishes, and even got one “Keep spreading the cheer, girls!”
What a wonderful outing making special Christmas memories. Seeing our neighbors faces lit up with smiles warmed the cockles of our hearts. Knowing they were responsible for all those smiles and warm feelings brought the girls SO much joy.
If that’s not what Christmas is about, well I don’t know what is.
