I LOVE Christmas!!!

There's something undeniably warm and comforting about Christmas--whether it be the crisp cold days in stark juxtaposition of the burning fire of the hearth... or the laughter of close friends and family.. the ugly "holiday sweaters" coupled with egg nog, roasted chestnuts and hot cocoa-- rosey red cheeks and the shine of ornaments on the Douglas Fir-- the off key hymns and carols sang unabashedly round the piano and the crunch of snow beneath your feet as you shuffle from one Christmas parade to the candle lite Christmas Eve service at church. The snow flakes that dot your coat-- the scarf that's just long enough to cover the tip of your nose-- icicles that form on the bottom of your car and the beauty of the lights adorning the front porch. The taste of candy cane and the aroma of freshly baked culinary perfections. For these reasons and many more--- I love Christmas.
