That Holiday Mood

There's something incredible about the holidays that makes everyone happier, friendlier, and a bit brighter. It's the magic of the season, and in my opinion one of the best parts of the holidays. Maybe people are happy about the crisp & cool weather, the gifts to come, or all the twinkling lights. But whatever it is I swear, something that's in the holiday air shifts everyone's moods completely.

The other day I was in line to buy OJ and the store I was at had one of those reward programs where you earn stamps on a card for every purchase you make, and if you buy 12 items {and therefore get 12 stamps} you get a free item! So I was standing in line to get {the best ever} OJ and the lady behind me said "Here, take my 12 stamps and get that OJ for free. Merry Christmas!" I was so taken aback by the act of kindness, I didn't really know what to say, except for thank you. You really don't come across pure kindness like that everyday. 
I don't know, maybe I'm just crazy! But I just feel like people in general act differently {in a good way} around the holidays. Strangers hold doors open a little bit longer, smile a little sweeter, and say "hi" or "have a great day" a little more often.


Have you noticed that holiday mood I'm talking about?

My challenge for you: even if its something big or small, share the love this season and do a random act of kindness for a complete stranger!
