Christmas Clutter

I love Christmas, however, I dislike the Christmas clutter. The wrapping paper, bows, and miscellaneous stuff that clutters up my home.

Tonight, my husband and I boxed and bagged gift after gift. Whew! Now we have gifts stacked in little piles from one end of the house to the other. A new kind of clutter that is neatly and prettily wrapped.

But the joy of family and friends during this festive time, outweighs the Christmas clutter and the holiday hassles. So, tomorrow as I stir up some fudge, mix a batch of caramel corn and simmer some apple cider, I'll be thankful for the privilege of Christmas clutter. And as Charles Dickens, wrote in the Christmas Carol, "And God bless us everyone!"
