Christmas shopping in Northampton

What about Christmas going shopping in Northampton?

Turning on the radio station today I caught some lovely Christmas songs that made me recall wonderful moments, scents, and emotions from childhood, and got a special enhanced yet so delightful spirit of winter celebrations that induces seductive magic with a warm touch in a cozy atmosphere... and made me think that would be a perfect day for Christmas shopping in Northampton.

Christmas gifts everyone will be pleased to find under the tree… a cuddly teddy bear, lots of coveted presents and toys, elegant and sensual perfumes with vanilla, honey, praline, caramel, musk, orange fragrances that make you eat them all, fine wine and effervescent champagne in stylish bottles, silky chocolate, and delicious fruits, all creating the sparkling magic of winter season.

Baking the perfect turkey, rib of beef, or easy-carve ham, cooking delicious homemade meals and appetizing crisp pastry or cream-filled zesty cakes fully iced, frenzy searching for perfect gifts and wrapping them, creating the special look for nights out… sweet activities that create a unique festive feeling.

Whether you celebrate the day or not, it’s funny how this time of year highlights a reflection, gratitude, and goodwill feeling or state of mind.

In that spirit, here are a few quotes and thoughts to ponder on this special period of the year:

“Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.” - Calvin Coolidge

“Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.” - Norman Vincent Peale

“My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?” - Bob Hope

“Christmas is not a date. It is a state of mind.” - Mary Ellen Chase

“Christmas is the spirit of giving without a thought of getting. It is happiness because we see the joy in people. 

It is forgetting self and finding time for others. It is discarding the meaningless and stressing the true values.” - Thomas S. Monson
