Hi, I’m Sharon. Welcome To My ChristmasGoRound Blog

As you can tell from the two logo images that ChristmasGoRound has been around before — I believe it may have been 2015. I do recall that around that time I was juggling 6 websites. Obviously, something had to give . . . Actually, over the last few years, only one of the original 6 websites is still up and running. The others are gone never to return. Not so with ChristmasGoRound. My thoughts about a Christmas website have changed from my original plans. I do have a goal — before December 25, 2022, I’ll have 100 Christmas Cookie Recipes published on this website. It is only a matter of time to tell whether that goal is achieved . . . or not.

I was truly excited and pleased to come across my original logo design for this website. It is Christmas . . . My new concept is one of life . . . running in circles . . . life’s ups and downs . . . I do like the concept of a carousel horse, evidently it is no longer confined to the carousel, but set out to pasture . . . Receiving a new perspective . . . Not unlike what I’ve been experiencing as I began rebuilding ChristmasGoRound — Where It’s Christmas All Year Round.

Comparing the two logo designs, I’m reminded of something my mother would say when she received a Christmas card from my dad’s brother — “Why does he always choose cards of the desert? It’s not like Christmas at all.” My mother would have preferred my original logo over my carousel horse. Perhaps I should change the background to a snow covered field . . . Or allow it to be as it is. Not everyone has the same concept or experiences regarding the Christmas or Holiday Season. We live in different areas — some places don’t experience snow . . . their Holiday Season is during the summer, not the winter.  . . . They’re spending time at the beach while others are all bundled up. Life is decidedly fluid . . . As are our thoughts and feeling about Christmas.
