I really hate to start on Christmas already when Thanksgiving is right around the corner. I wanna give it it’s proper due man!
But I can’t deny the reality of the world. Let’s get real. My Facebook feed is starting to already blow up a bit with the Christmas shopping and the Christmas tree decorations. Lot’s of y’all are already there. So I’m not going to look at it as overlooking Thanksgiving. I’m going to look at it as extending the celebration of Christmas. A holiday that we all celebrate and have an amazing opportunity to really share our faith with others who may not understand why we celebrate this day.
Each year Christmas means so much more to me. Maybe it’s because I’m getting older. Maybe it’s because I’m a mom (and when you’re a mom there really is a sort of an enlightenment of how you see the world that just happens unexpectedly). Maybe it’s because I’ve had more time and more experiences in my faith.
A couple of Christmas’ ago, I shared a little about how I am seeing Christmas and want more from it. This year is no different. Well, that’s not true. It is really. As I start to think about the shopping and the gift giving… there is just something different.
So. With that being said, I made a Christmas print. This is one of my favorites as far as Christmas quotes go. The Grinch is a big deal in our family. Since I can remember, my mom has loved this movie. We’ve gotten her Grinch slippers, Grinch shirts and all kinds of Grinch shenanigans. Fittingly, she has passed that love down to her grandkids so needless to say I have seen and heard this movie a lot. I know just about every line.
This one’s a favorite. Jaime and I made it a quote plaque in our Christmas line for Off The Wall Home and it was always a best seller. I think everyone just really get’s it. I think we all know there is more to Christmas. So much more. Thank goodness there’s more!
If you like the print, head over to The Shop. I have a few other Christmas prints in the works and hope to have them up soon. However, I’m (thankfully) knee-deep in cabinet doors at the moment so they might make the shop next Christmas.
