Can you believe that it’s December 1 already?
Honestly, where did this year go?
As one holiday is behind me and another is approaching, my mind has gone into holiday tradition mode. I know some people who look forward to the fun surprises of doing the daily reveal of an advent calendar.
Others who enjoy decorating or baking or having Christmas music playing all day long.
I know others who have favorite TV shows or movies they watch at least once each year at this time.
Knowing the words and songs verbatim is not a deterrent; it’s comforting and familiar.
What is it that we love so much about particular traditions, movies, stories, or books?
What is it about the classics that draw us back time and time again?
I found an answer recently that, funny enough, answers that question for me.
It’s so true, isn’t it?
A Christmas Carol pops into my head, as does It’s a Wonderful Life and even A Christmas Story. No matter how many times I hear the words, read the words, or see productions (TV or stage), there’s something slightly new each time.
There are so many ‘classics’ out there; these are just a couple on my mind for the Christmas season.
What classics can you read, listen to, or watch over and over again?
