The Magic of Christmas

I love Christmas, there's no way of getting around it, Christmas is my favorite time of the year. Everything about it is appealing: The excitement of choosing or making a gift for those on your list; The cool crisp air that makes you feel alive; The aromas waffling from the kitchen of a plethora of cookies and goodies being created; well, I could go on and on, but, I'll stop for a minutes.

During this wonderful, cheerful, exhausting season not many people seem to take the time to think, really, deeply think about what Christmas means to them. To me it means, family, friends, celebration of life and love, gathering together to celebrate living, loving, faith, hope, and the closeness of those I love. The gifts are an added pleasure but to tell the truth, just being with the ones I love is enough for me.

I enjoy all of the shopping, running around, and planning, it may be tiring but it's fun. At the end of the day I realized I had a hard time telling anyone what I would like for Christmas. I am one of those who are uncomfortable receiving - I love to give. My family struggles to find just the thing they think I would like. I finally shared with them that a picture of them is what would bring me joy. I now have a picture collection that is the envy of all those far and wide. I make a special gift for those closest to me as a way of giving a part of myself to them. My Christmas giving begins in January, after all, I need plenty of time to create.

Anyway, Christmas it the most giving, loving time of the year for, I hope, many. The most satisfying Christmas is when you spend the time just plain enjoying the company of family and friends.

      These are very cute. I don't happen to have any young children in my immediate life right now, but they caught my eye and I just had to say that I think they're very cute. :) Little kids get a kick out of stuff that has a Christmas-y touch.
