Welcome to Day 24 of the Virtual Advent Tour!

Guys, we made it. Whether by hook or crook, no matter how much we rush or how little we sleep, Christmas will arrive tomorrow. So in these final hours, I hope you are able to slow down, enjoy some Christmas music, hug your loved ones (in person or virtually), and ponder the blessings of the season, no matter how humble or unusual they might be this year. Then get some sleep. After all, tomorrow is Christmas!

Christmas Wrappings

Behind the final door in this year’s Virtual Advent Tour is, as it was last year, Teri at Henningsen Happenings. Teri has written about how her Christmas has changed this year and how she’s trying to make the most of it.

Thank you, Teri, for sharing this blog post with us and for taking part in the tour once again.

As you probably remember, I gave serious consideration to not doing the Virtual Advent Tour this year. I’m so glad, though, that you all convinced me that together we could make it work. Through this group effort of ours, I think we put together something pretty nice that I really looked forward to reading every day this month and that I hope you did, too.

I offer my formal thanks to raidergirl3, Bridget, Kat, Rudi, Jo Kay, Tami, AĆ­ne Greaney, Deb Nance, Tasha, Molly, Teri, and Zoe. My thanks are especially deep toward those of you who took on a second blog post, relieving me of that responsibility.

So, as they sing on my favorite holiday special, Christmas Eve on Sesame Street,

Keep Christmas with you
All through the year.
When Christmas is over,
Spread some Christmas cheer.
These precious moments,
hold them very dear.
And keep Christmas with you
All through the year.

Happy Holidays! Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Thank you so much for hosting this wonderful blog tour! I was honored to be part of such an incredible group! And, I have tears for Sesame Street – it was my favorite thing to watch with my kids!
