Christmas, my child, is love in action. Every time we love, every time we give, it’s Christmas. – Dale Evans

There are so many things to remember during the holidays.

We need to remember the names that go on the gift list. We need to remember to send the Christmas greeting cards. We need to remember to order the ham.

and…

We need to remember that first silent night. We need to remember to save time for our families. We need to remember to enjoy some peace.

and…

We need to remember to change the sheets on the guest bed. We need to remember to pick up some AAA batteries. We need to remember to buy extra giftwrap tape.

and…

We need to remember we create the Christmas spirit. We need to remember to put a bow on happiness. We need to remember to help others.

and…

We need to remember Aunt Rose can’t have any dairy. We need to remember the eggnog. We need to remember to check the outside light timers.

and…

We need to remember to keep Christmas going on Dec. 26. We need to remember to share our joy. We need to remember to pass on our family traditions.

and…

We need to remember the grocery store closes at 5 p.m. on Christmas Eve. We need to remember to grab some extra ice. We need to remember the champagne.

and…

We need to remember the love we’ve been shown. We need to remember to be love. We need to remember love is the best gift to give.

This Christmas, remember the tasks that bring the holidays into your home.

and…

Remember the love, too.
