I have no idea why...but in the past few weeks, I have been wishing it was the holiday season! I love Christmas...decorating the tree, wrapping presents, making cookies, and all of the other wonderful sights, smells, and tastes of the season. However, I think on the brink of spring...it is a little odd that I have been longing for December already!
I have been smelling cinnamon and other scents that remind me of Christmas at school, making a list of who I have to buy for this year, and I even went so far as to bring my Elvis Christmas CD to work to listen to! Nowhere in all of my pregnancy reading, did I read that longing for a particular season/holiday was part of the nonsensical behavior that pregnant women exhibit, which leads me to wonder..."Why am I longing for Christmas so much?"
I suppose the answer is that for me, the magic of Christmas never wears off and it gives me something to look forward to all year long. Or, perhaps, the fact that I know the baby will be here and dreaming about all of the fun things that Jeff and I get to share as a family this year is just plain fun! So, I think I will go buy a Christmas inspired scented candle and continue to listen to my Christmas tunes...why not? If it makes me smile, I guess I don't care if I get asked a 100 times why I am playing Christmas music in April. =)
