I Will Never Forget

Posted 09-10-2010 at 09:30 PM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

Tomorrow marks the anniversary of one of the worst things I and probably most people have ever seen. I did not know a single person who lost their life due to the senseless act of terrorism, but I know people who were affected by loss of a loved one. My sister's husband lost one of his best friends in the WTC attack. I still remember the sense of surrealism and the fear everyone was feeling, a woman I was working with at the time came over and told me there was two plane crashes in NYC and I felt a little uneasy about it, and I went to talk to someone else and they said follow me, we went to a television and there were 20 other employees watching those horrific images. The feelings just got worse as we watched, I just remember people leaving crying, and the bosses sent home a bunch of employees, myself included, and they didn't want to have to worry about anyone getting home if things weren't over. I have only gotten older as that day has gotten further in the rearview, but I still have...

When the Dog Bites

Posted 09-09-2010 at 08:21 PM by Jeff Westover (A Merry Blog)

I should write a book about the correspondence I receive through My Merry Christmas.

Most of it is kind-hearted. Christmas blesses the lives of many because it is so easy to share. And that is why, I think, many people reach out to say things when they see something on these pages.

But occasionally I get snarling, nasty emails from folks.

You would think they would bring it to the pages of the forums. But honestly, they are almost always cloaked in the anonymity of the Internet. Most are submitted without real names or returnable email addresses. They simply rage and disappear, content I suppose in knowing that they told me.

Their complaints run the gamut:

"Your site is too Christian!"

"Santa is a fraud (and so are you!)"

"Hell has a spot reserved for sick weirdos who put up websites like this."

"Christmas, like religion, is just a virus of the mind."

"Why you...

Screaming At God

Posted 09-08-2010 at 01:00 PM by caninemom3

I have had this on my mind the last few days and debated on writing about it. I do not want to offend anyone but after all, our blogs are supposed to express our thoughts. Here goes. I don't know about anyone else here but occasionally I find myself so mad at God I could spit nails !! This may actually be for things He is or is not responsible for but He gets the blame nonetheless when I have a fit. There have been times when I have LITERALLY screamed at Him and yes, though I hate to admit it, have called Him, the Lord Almighty, every unsavory name in the book (and NOT the good book !) I have even shaken my fist at the sky screaming like a lunatic. I am not proud of this. Not at all. It is simply something that occurs sometimes.

For a while I was taught that you NEVER do this. NEVER blaspheme, if that is what I have done. But I do it. I just get fed up sometimes with things in this life. Fed up with good people suffering or being taken away too soon. Fed up with prejudice,...

Fall Blurbs!

Posted 09-08-2010 at 10:05 AM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

Growing up back to school time for me was not a good time, I actually dreaded it. Being a very shy child I struggled with making friends especially after moving to 5 different towns in 6 years, I was perpetually the new kid every year, and it made it very easy for other children to pick on me.
Now my older boy is in kindergarten, and I hope he grows to enjoy school, it will be a huge advantage for him to really like it. If I can help it we will never move from this town so he can grow up with the same kids he has been with since pre-school.

Next week we will be doing our family trip to the apple orchard to pick our apples for pies and other desserts, I really look forward to that day and I hope there will be a chill in the air because it is more seasonal with that little chill. After picking the apples we will have cider and cider doughnuts and I will pick up that painting of the boy with the Santa hat building a snowman. It is such a great family day for us, 13...

The Christmas Snowglobe

Posted 09-05-2010 at 01:57 PM by kelly ann

With the car now loaded, Danny seated himself in the back and proceeded to play his DS. He felt he was getting too old for all this palavar and lately had been questioning the whole Christmas thing altogether. Chrsitmas was the biggest event in the year for the family, more so than birthdays. Although he loved it his Chrsitmas spirit was waning.
The trip to Grandads in Boston usually took a an hour or so. Mum and dad always played Christmas music on the way.
'C'mon Dan'', mum said ''join in''. But he looked up at her and grinned and carried on playing his game console.
Mum was a Christmas nut and Dad was even worse.
The house would be decorated the second week in December every year. The baking would start about then also, and mum alaways had enough left over in January!!
Dad always told the story of how they had met at a Christmas function held by Dads Law company.
Soon after they had married the visiting of his parents every year became somewhat...
