I did not put up the big tree this year, because I ran out of time. Oh, well it is not like I am expecting Santa to bring me gifts. It not like I have small children at home, that will be disappointed. Whatever I do it is for my enjoyment. I like to decorate during the holidays, even if there is not one gift under the under tree..
Having Joy and having Faith go together, in that regards. I have faith in God, so I have joy even though I have never seen him.
