When we are making out our Christmas lists, we usually include items that can be wrapped and put under the tree. Perfume, books, iPads and fuzzy socks all fit nicely into little packages to be opened on Christmas morning. But, what sort of unwrappable surprises would you like to receive this year? If I could have anything I wanted that could NOT be wrapped, here are a few things I would choose (I am not including the obvious like world peace and an end to poverty…while those would be nice to have, I am pretty sure they aren’t going to happen any time soon)
My unwrappable Christmas List
1. I wish my children would sleep past 6 AM on Christmas morning.
2. I wish my family (grandparents, siblings, cousins ,etc) could be together for a Christmas meal.
3. I wish my husband would offer to COOK that Christmas meal so that I could take a nap (which I might not need if I get #1 on my list).
4. I wish I would not have to make the annual trip to Walgreens because something needs batteries that we don’t have.
5. I wish the children would not argue over who’s turn it is to play the new Wii game.
6. I wish to attend the Christmas service at church without my children complaining…or my husband.
7. I wish all calories eaten over the week of Christmas didn’t count.
8. I wish I could have a white Christmas like I grew up with…even though I live in Georgia and it is 60 degrees.
While I am not going to cross the iPad off my Christmas list, there is something to be said for surprises that can’t be wrapped.
With Director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon and Musical Director Paul Mirkovich at the helm, T-Mobile surprised shoppers at the Chicagoland area’s Woodfield Mall with a surprise performance and updated spin on the holiday classic, “(There’s No Place Like) Home For The Holidays”. Check out the video below…I found it particularly moving and beautifully choreographed!
