#UnWrapChristmas: Turning the spotlight on the spirit of the season

Festivities are in the air for Christmas is here! On the eve of Christmas, a bunch of merry bloggers have banded together to unwrap the spirit of the season. Join us as we spread some Christmas cheer in the blogosphere this year! A big thank you to Vijay Preetham Burton for passing the chain on to me.


As I share what Christmas means to me through images and a few words, in the spirit of the season, I also have some surprises for you! Click on the images to unwrap your presents – little nuggets, some from deep within the archives, that I hope will help you bring these feelings into your life too!

Christmas is when I yearn to….


I like to snuggle up with my Tarot cards and yearly workbook, reflect on the year gone by, choose a focus word for the coming year, and plan the month ahead…

It’s my time to examine all the areas where I feel stuck, and figure out how I can rise from the confusion and disappointments of the year gone by…

And welcome in the gifts of the new year…

And finally, if you feel inspired to give a gift that keeps on giving, may I suggest that you make a donation to Divya Disha, an NGO that is doing some excellent work with children.

On that note, Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!

With this, I pass the chain on to Bhavya Nandakumar. Go see what she has for you this Christmas!
