Do you remember, when you were young, the excitement and wonder of the Christmas Season?
Do you remember that feeling that you got in your belly when your Mom was busy in the kitchen baking Christmas cookies?
I’m sure you remember the tossing and turning you did, after you went to bed on Christmas Eve, when you were way too excited to go to sleep. And waking up ten times on Christmas Eve when the slightest noise in the house, the slightest creak, made you think that Santa and his sleigh were on your roof!!
That’s why we do it. We do it because to look back, as adults, on a time long ago, when we were small, and innocent, and naive; when times were simpler and life was a lot easier, is fun sometimes. It’s fun to reminisce and be nostalgic, and be a kid again, especially at this time of the year.
We can get together, with old friends and relatives, or with new friends and neighbors. Whether it’s in the middle of the street having fun watching really cool Christmas lights, or around the table for Christmas dinner. It doesn’t matter where you are, or who you are with.
THE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT IS ALIVE, AND WELL, AND STILL LIVES IN EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US!
