It's one of my favorite times of the year right now. It's the most wonderful time of the year! The time of year when we celebrate our Saviors birth!
One of the reasons I love this time of year, (besides celebrating Christs birth) is that everyone is happy, cheerful, nice and more polite then normal. People smile at you, say merry Christmas or happy holidays! It's so sad that people save there joyful spirits for this time of year. We should be celebrating Christmas every day and carry the joy of the season throughout the year!
I hope that anyone can see the joy of the Lord in me everyday and not only at Christmas time.
Another thing I love about this time of year, is the gift giving. I LOVE giving gifts. I love the smiles and laughter they bring. I have done lots of Christmas shopping this year and can't wait till all the secrets are out! =)
On Christmas day, I usually give Chester treats. Oats, carrots, extra grain and peppermint treats if I have any. Like I have said before, my horse is a picky eater. =( Other wise I would give him apples and other fun stuff.
I haven't gotten my horse any gifts though. In February there is a big used tack sale and I will hopefully be getting some tack there. So those can be his late Christmas gifts. =)
I have thought about getting him a hat or reindeer antlers but haven't spent the money on that yet....
What do you guys get your horses for Christmas? Do you do anything special with them?
Isn't this the sweetest picture ever?!? I LOVE it!
