The Spirit Inside

Posted 06-19-2010 at 12:01 AM by Adam

I am not even sure how to describe my Christmas feelings....to myself....let alone anyone else.

People have asked me why I listen to Christmas music year round, or think I am totally nuts for doing so.

People wonder why Christmas or Holidays mean so much to me. I am going to attempt to explain the reasons why.

Why holidays.....what holidays you ask? Well I love Halloween and Christmas the most. But we are talking Christmas here. I will sure try to tell all of you why I love it so.

Thoughts of Christmas bring me back to a time of pure happiness. A season of warmth, of goodies like the Christmas Tree, cookies, the smell of pine, the warm fire. These things warm my heart beyond anything I can imagine. For example, each time I hear Charlie Brown Christmas songs like "O Tannenbaum," tears fill my eyes with an overwhelming sense of joy.....of love...of simplicity. A simple song can invoke Christmas bliss, but also innocence,...

All Christmas All the Time: Can it be done?

In early May, the Great Recession knocked on my door and now I am numbered with the unemployed.

As I take stock of my situation and the world at large it has become clear that even as a man in his mid-40's I have fewer career options than ever. For a long time, as I've noted here and in my personal blog, I've operated this and a number of other websites on the side. I've kept them in my back pocket dreaming that maybe one day -- once the kids are settled - I could just hang out here where the walls bleed Christmas full time as my job.

That dream day has been envisioned as one where I was sitting on a pile of retirement money in a little cabin in the mountains where my bride and I could enjoy the grandkids while explaining to them that this is what Grandpa does for a living -- My Merry Christmas.com.

Things aren't turning out quite that way.

I know there is no chance of replacing the job I just lost. I know there is no way life...

Christmas And Getting Older

My name on MMC is Caninemom3, but my real name is Louanne. I have always loved Christmas, in fact just like everyone here I am a Christmas nut !!

Time has passed so fast in my life it is just unbelievable. When I was little, which was in the 1960's my main focus was the gifts. The beautiful wonderful tree just bulging with all those gifts !!! I could scarcely sleep on Christmas Eve in those days. As I have gotten older, I have realized that the most important part of Christmas for me is my family and friends. Most of my family is gone. My parents have both passed as well as my first husband and both my brothers. These days the only "family of origin" I have left is my dear sister. It is hard to believe that Christmas could be more special to me than when I was little but it is just that, more special when I am with my sister. We are a couple of nuts when we get together. You should see us !! Or perhaps you should not !! We seem quite insane and to quote "A...

As another great hockey season came to a close last night, I was able to sit back and reflect on the season as a fan. Many of you probably can tell by reading my posts I am a hockey fanatic. I will always say that in sports terms baseball was my first love, but hockey is my true love. Growing up in New England during the 80's and 90's you could always count on two things, the Red Sox breaking your heart, and the Bruins making the playoffs, the latter set a record making the playoffs 29 years straight. I spent many winter days playing hockey on the frozen ponds for hours, until it got to dark to see, I was never a great skater but I was playing hockey and that is all that mattered. Growing up I was always a Bruins fan, and I started following Mario Lemieux, I was in awe of his talent, the moves he made, the accuracy of his shot, I became a Penguins fan also, so the Bruins are #1 and the Pens #1A to me. This season didn't end like I wished when both my teams lost in the second round, but...

I Have Got Christmas on My Mind!!!

Posted 05-17-2010 at 09:33 PM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

Funny, I know, to be thinking of Christmas while on a website dedicated to the most wonderful time of the year. I have never spent as much time thinking about Christmas as I have since joining. It may be only May, but I have listened to some Christmas music a lot more during the "off-season" this year than in years past, I spend time looking on Ebay for a good deal on anything Christmas especially DVD's, I am in overdrive trying to think of ways to decorate the house for the upcoming holidays, and starting to get in the mindset to look for Christmas gifts for family and friends. I am really looking forward to the holidays this year, (as I do every year) My boys will be another year older my younger one starts to get excited when he sees pictures of Santa so he will understand that aspect this year. MMC is now my favorite website, I do not have a Facebook or Myspace account, this is as close as I will probably get to one, because I like this small community of people who have...
