Merry Christmas!

I just wanted to take a moment to wish everyone celebrating Christmas today a very merry holiday! We don't celebrate Christmas in our family (being Muslim) which comes as quite a shock to my peers at my all girls private Catholic university lol. But, I can't say I don't love parts of the holiday. Whoever came up with the idea of green, poinsettia red, and gold was a genius! I also love the emphasis on getting together with family no matter what and sharing meals and presents. Some may say over-commercialization has made the day into something it shouldn't be, but I think the fundamental idea of being with the ones we love in a normally crazy world is a beautiful one indeed. Also, you gotta love those ugly sweater parties! I got invited to a few this year and explained it to my mom. To which she replied, "How are you going to decide which sweater to wear? All of yours are ugly." ;)

If you're not celebrating, enjoy your day(s) off without any pressure to get dressed up. Unless you're me and have a wedding to attend. I never win!

The photograph below is a shot I took of my doctor's Christmas tree! A job well done in my opinion!

@Scanner I was going for the simple look. Thanks for the suggestion though! Will come in handy for future layout changes :)
