Using your Senses at Christmas:

How do we get into the holiday mood when we're not? 
Rely on your senses...

Baking cookies, cakes, pies and bread that have been traditions in the family and sampling brings in both of the senses of SMELL and TASTE.

Stringing lights on the outside and the inside of the house  and remembering that God is the light of the world is the sense of SIGHT.

Listening to the Christmas music on intercoms, the radio and caroling in the streets, attending choir concerts. I sang this morning at a nursing home and the faces of the people lit up as they joined in. The sense of SOUND.
And joining hands, we used our sense of TOUCH and said the Lord's Prayer with the seniors.

"Fake it til you make it" is a 12 step slogan. It works here too!
