Christmas Ornaments & Cats
by Kari Lee Townsend
Sunny Meadows speaks...
Christmas ornaments and cats do not mix, folks!
I love the holidays. Everything looks so beautiful. The streets of Divinity are lined with wreaths and bows and twinkling lights displayed proudly on the old-fashioned street lamps. Christmas music pours out of vintage store speakers in the antique Victorian buildings. And a fresh dusting of pristine white snow softly blankets the town.
Receiving gifts is fun. I can admit that. But giving gifts feels wonderful. The part I like the most is when I see the look on my friends' and loved ones' faces when they see what I bought or made for them. It doesn't really matter what the gift is, it's the thought that counts. The realization that someone cares about you and wants to make you happy.
The only thing I don't like about the holidays is having a naughty scrooge under my roof. Okay, so my cat Morty isn't really a scrooge, but he is most definitely on the naughty list. Every decoration I put up, he bats down with his big white paws. For some reason the ornaments on my tree fascinate him. No matter what I do, he refuses to leave them alone. I'd give him a lump of coal in his stocking, but I think he'd like it. Sigh. So tell me, what do you love about the holidays and what frustrates you?
