Happy December y'all! With Thanksgiving behind us, Christmas season is officially in full swing. I love this time of year, even if it tends to be one of the busiest of the year. I love the lights, the Christmas trees (what beats the smell of pine right now?!), decorating, the coziness and all the social gatherings. What I really love though, is the season leading up to Christmas - Advent. For me, it's more than just enjoying the glitz and glamor of the season, it's the anticipation of celebrating the birth of Jesus and the hope that he will one day return to fix the brokenness of this world.
With that in mind, in addition to the normal calendar wallpapers I made for the month of December, I created a wallpaper with a line that's been stuck in my head from one of my favorite Christmas hymns - O Holy Night. The line says, "A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices," which sums up how I think about Christmas. I already have that wallpaper on my iPhone's lock screen :).

The calendar option is also a fun one: the Christmas lights in silver and gold might be one of my favorite designs for these calendars.

You can download any (or all!) of these freebies by clicking the links below each wallpaper. They will take you to Dropbox and you can grab them there.
I hope you are all enjoying this season so far however you like to celebrate it! We just got our tree up last night and I'm excited to decorate it over the next few days. We picked a fresh Frasier fir from our local hardware store down the street and brought it home on foot. Perhaps carrying it on foot will be a new tradition in this house? Ha!
