Merry Christmas Everyone!

Christmas gift suggestions: to your enemy, forgiveness. To an opponent, tolerance. To a friend, your heart. To a customer, service. To all, charity. To every child, a good example. To yourself, respect.

-Oren Arnold

I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and the happiest and healthiest New Year. While I often think that Christmas is increasingly more and more for children, I still love the feelings of joy and love in the holiday season.

Here’s my Christmas love list. I love…

  • Big family meals that have us still sitting around the table for hours after the last dessert was enjoyed
  • Family gift exchanges, not for the getting but to see what others are giving and for the memories made
  • The feeling you get when you wish a complete stranger a Merry Christmas
  • New pajamas every single Christmas Eve
  • Traditions
  • Christmas music
  • Real Christmas trees
  • Dominic the Donkey
  • Red cups, because commercialism runs our world so why not have a coffee company tell me when it’s socially acceptable to start celebrating
  • Eggnog martini’s. Screw the latte, I’ll take it with vodka and amaretto
  • The smells of Christmas: fresh cut trees, nutmeg, gingerbread, cinnamon, mandarin oranges
  • The rare white Christmas
  • Christmas movies: It’s a Wonderful Life, Love Actually and the cartoon version of Grinch
  • Christmas lights everywhere
  • People who remain cheerful in busy holiday stores
  • Candy cane shivs
  • That feeling you get only around Christmas that can only be described as that feeling

Merry Christmas everyone!
