What’s the thing I love most about Christmas?
Do I love getting the most expensive gifts
from friends and family?
Getting the biggest food plate and being greedy?
Waiting in line at the mall to tell Santa
my 300-item list of crap I don’t need?
No. I favor something else.
I love the music, hearing how beautiful people
can sing so elegantly, and the melodies
that people hum, even when it’s August.
I love that people go out of their way
even if they have no money, they have that
Christmas spirit to give and keep giving.
I love that my friends are smiling and
wearing those awful Christmas sweaters,
reading stories and cuddling close, giving tight
hugs and telling us how much they love
you, with cheeks gushing with a red rosy tint
or when that cute couple of friends walk
under mistletoe by accident.
I love cuddling close, and telling stories of
Christmas past by a fireplace, telling our highs
and lows of holidays in our past holding hands
and giving pecks on your significant other’s cheek.
I love the snow and competitive snowman making and
paid attention to detail on their newly created faces, and
sledding, snowboarding and skiing downhill.
I love hanging with family, especially when we don’t fight
we smile and laugh and hug new gifts tightly
telling everyone how much we’ll use a care for it.
I love decorating with beautiful lights around my
home and the wooden props outside my home.
I love taking photos of the animals and
people who love winter running around taking polaroids
of friends who love playing in the snow and jumping and throwing
snow, wearing their fabulous clothing, scarfs and hats.
I love sipping hot coco and hot tea and reading Christmas
stories be jade or watching a winter themed movie, and listening to good music.
I love the people who give up time and money to help
kids and people who won’t get the Christmas they wanted,
who deliver a smile to kids and parents so that everyone
I love… Ya know what? I love the spirit.
The loved ones
I love Christmas, and I hope that you all have a good one.
