Where in the world is Ebeneezer Scrooge?

Look no longer, you can can find him residing with me! Yes, my dear, sweet loving hubs is Scrooge in disguise! I know, you don't believe it, generally I don't either, but Christmas brings out the Scrooge in him!

Let me clarify. My husband is very generous, kind and giving. In fact, this year he has exceeded all expectations! (I will post on that later!). However, he is not one in favor of any decoration, tree, ornament, wreath, tinsel strand, Santa ornament, poinsettia plant, lights of any kind-he is ba- humbug! He also does not want to receive any gift, but he is willing to give--just like the little stream-give oh give away!

He does however, focus on the true meaning of Christmas! I love this aspect of him. Christ is never far away from our Christmas celebrations. Isn't this how it should be? So after some consideration I think I might join him in his "Scroogy-ness" and focus my attention onto where it should be!

Ask me how it goes in a few weeks! I'm off to follow my husband's example, and give!
